Thread: Maxxis Hookworm 2.5?
Maxxis Hookworm 2.5?
Im Starting a Build soon and i want to get my rear tire setup first and work from there. Im thinking of the Maxxis Hookworm 26x 2.5. I like the Fat/wide tire for the rear. Was wondering what is the best spot to find a decent price on theses tires? Also, What rim size would fit best? I currently have some beach cruiser wheels but i think the rim is to skinny.
Any tips or links would be appreciated"I Love the smell of Napalm in the Morning. Smells like Victory."
Dang! A 2.5 Surly Rim alone is $170! Yikes"I Love the smell of Napalm in the Morning. Smells like Victory."
I think your best bet for a rim size would be 26x2.125.I have the hookworms mounted on this size with no problems.I found a set on the web for $55 shipped a few months back.They are still out of stock...look on Ebay.MotoMagz
What Hubs are those and what size spokes are you running?
Are those the 26x 2.5 Hookworms?"I Love the smell of Napalm in the Morning. Smells like Victory."
Kid, yes 2.5 worms and 12 guage spoke with Sturmey 90mm front drum brake and sturmey internal 5 speed with a 70 mm drum brakeMotoMagz
Nice Setup! Thats some Pricey Bling but well worth it."I Love the smell of Napalm in the Morning. Smells like Victory."
If you can find 'em, Sun Mammoth BFR (Big Fat Rim) are just about indestructible. And, they're wide. (32H rims are easy to come by. 36H rims are hard to find, though.)
Had The Wheelmaster build a wheel for me a few years ago. We used a BFR, a Sturmey-Archer Dynahub (w drum brake) and 10 gage spokes. I haven't had to touch the wheel since.

Just recently I bought a barely used set of Maxxis Hookworms on eBay for cheap. These tires are awesome! I also got a set of Kenda DH Schrader valve tubes & they are almost as stout as these tires...for wheels I went with a brand I have had great success with & went with Sun Rhyno Lites & XT hubs also on eBay. To save some coin, check out Niagara Cycles & the CST Cyclops...Its almost the exact same tire as the hookworm only alot less expensive...
and they are a lot cheaper than Hookworms.
