36er Mtn Bike MythTake

So, there has been talk in world of building better and better bici. (Not necessarily bigger bici, but in this case, yes) The idea has been thrown about to build a 36" wheel mountain bike. Well, it was kind of a good idea, but with one fatal flaw: Its simply not possible... at least not the normal way. The issue is head tube angle. You can see that this bike is only good for wheelies. Apparently, its REALLY good at wheelies, and maybe not much else!

The only way to do this right is to make it a tall bike, as shown here. Aaron, this is a calling for us as stompaz. Shall we make it the SSWC 2010 GrStompaDanceParty Prize...?
