Yeah, whats the story on the tuff wheels? You sure its 20mm?
If someone was motivated enough to make it 20mm compatible I wonder if you could figure out a way for disc...

check the posts in the DJ/bmx forum.. the wheel is 20mm.. i think it was converted.. but apparently Skyway is going to be bringing the mags out that are disc brake ready.. :thumb:

That's pretty cool, I always hated the braking on my tuff wheels.

OK, I'll try to answer some questions on both bikes.

Mountain Cycle will soon start production of the new, as yet to be named slopestyle bike. The production version will look nearly identical, but will be much lighter and fine tuned. Price should be very affordable for a frame of this quality, made here in Portland, OR.

Yes those are 24" Tuff Wheels with a custom 20mm thru-axle on the front.
Tony, from Tonic Fab can make damn near anytang!

can you still put them in the freezer if you bend um - and they straighten up?!

thems were the days
My freezer isn't big enough.:D
I haven't had these Tuffs very long, they flex quite a bit but have stayed true so far. Skyway is working on some updated "graphite" 24"s with disc brake mounts and cassettes. They should be great for dirt jump / urban guys who are hard on wheels. They might give me some for testing.

My v brakes work great with Skyway Tuffpads and linear shifter housing.
