Hi Chook! 

Thank you - yes we had a lot of fun!

My friend Rinus made the wheels, we call them Rinuswheels. The spokes are standard, but wraped by „spoke covers“. They are made of plastic available in many different colors.

Ahh thanks for your reply Juan, that's what tricked me the plastic spoke covers.

We are trying 26" x 3 1/2" Fatbike rims with heavy duty hubs and 12g spokes on our land yachts but the spokes keep pulling out of the hubs with the greater side loads. A yacht has so much more down-pressure imposed than a kite buggy.

Cheers Chook

I think, 26“ is too much. It wouldnt work on a buggy, either.

The rinuswheel has a 20“ fatbike rim (102mm width) with 4,2mm spokes and stainless hubs. Very solid!

The only problem is finding good tyres for that size. We use Kenda 20“x4 1/2“, but they are hard to get...

Wow 4.2mm spokes that is solid. They are on 20mm axles?

Yeh 26" would get in the way on a buggy for sure. We use the 26" to roll over a very soft surface where I live but cant use them in competition as the rules state 400mm Od wheelbarrow tyres on International 5.6 landyachts.

Thanks for your time Juan I really appreciate it.

Cheers. :friends:

      Oct.8-14th was the Wildwood buggy bash held in Wildwood NJ, Usa. What started as a weekend get together has evolved into a week long gathering of buggy, boarding, and blokart family. This year, those who arrived early were treated to some amazing onshore winds courtesy of Hurricane Michael. Wildwood beach is approximately 7 miles of amazing hardpack facing the Atlantic ocean. This year we had 4 GT buggies, a PTW and 2 MG Supras as well as the assortment of PL and Flexifoil buggies. Having upgraded my gear this year allowed me to set several PB's. I buggied more this bash than all my previous ones combined.
