We know you like it big. We know you like it carbon. We know that, well, you're kind of a Big Deal, and people know you.
Thus far, our Big Deal fat rims and wheels have won the hearts of cyclists around the world. What if that's not enough for you? What if we told you that we now have an even BIGGER deal than before?
Enter: The Big Half Deal (B.H.D.). This is a special, larger diameter version of our beloved 85mm-wide carbon Big Deal rim. With a 27.5-inch size, it's smack-dab-HALF-way between a 26" wheel and a 29" wheel. If you have a new-fangled 27.5" fat bike, this is THE performance wheel choice.
Like other Big Deals, the B.H.D. is tube-less ready with our proprietary Inflatobam technology.
Build Options: The B.H.D. is available as a rim-only, or as a complete wheel using Hed Brickhouse hubs. Customers may also send in their own hubs for custom builds (see below for further info). The B.H.D. is built with bladed steel spokes and brass nipples. NOTE: In order to send hubs to us for a custom build, the dealer will need to call 651-653-0202 for an RA number. Hed isn't responsible for lost hubs that are sent without an RA number. Please don't send skewers, cassettes, or other small parts that are unnecessary for the wheel build. Allow 2-3 weeks for turn around.
1. Do NOT use tire levers on Big Deal carbon rims!!!
2. Specific to our Big Deal line of carbon rims: If you choose to ride these rims on regular dirt trails (e.g. NOT in soft snow or sand), wider tires and higher air pressure will decrease the chance of rim damage from striking an obstacle. We strongly recommend an honest assessment of your ride style. For the BHD, use 8psi minimum on groomed snow, or 10psi minimum on dirt and rocks - both with a minimum tire size of 3.8".
