Hodag, part 2.

20 01 2016

I got hold of the 46mm aluminium WTB presta valve, taped the rim with some 3M 764 and got busy with the airshot. BAM! up it went.

It held pressure with no sealant and at 25psi, the measurements are 745mm diameter, 87mm casing width and 93mm tread width. The casing appears to be around 68mm from rim edge to outer diameter, and 73mm if the knobs are included, but the accuracy of this is questionable as the vernier gauge was eyeballed. The rim is 45mm internal.

I will leave it overnight at high pressure and see how it stretches out and settles onto the rim. I am expecting the diameter to increase slightly given others’ measurements of a similar set up.

I think this is probably über plus, rather than fat.
