    Felt fork headset needed

    Any of these semi-integrated headsets available at Amazon ought to work: Headset #1 , Headset #2, Headset #3. The $16 one is the best of the lot. Good luck.

    New Hotwheels 68, Save it for the next generation or...

    LOL! Not dead yet. This bike has never been for sale, but anything I own can be had for the right money. It will take crazy dough to pry my hands off of this one.

    The tires are 24" x 3" Felt Thick Bricks and the rims are 50mm Felt cruiser rims. This is what it is looking like right now with 24" x 3" Felt Berm Master knobbies:

    Widest rear wheel on a Felt?

    A three inch rim with a Thick Brick or Fatti-O tire will be the max. You will definitely need to use an offset cog on the rear hub with that combo. Here is a pic of a Felt Chief that RRB member, Jandroart, customised some time ago:

    Gichigami Growler Grabber

    Got it. I'm basing my observation from the third pic in the OP, whereby the wear on the disc looks like there is only about 1/8" inch to nearly nothing in terms of pad contact.

    Gichigami Growler Grabber

    Two Way Tandem

    New Walmart Fat Tire Bike coming in a couple weeks

    My Massif finally arrived today. It needed the typical box-bike regreasing and adjustments. For what it costs to assemble just a pair of wheels and tires from Choppers US ($350+), this little fatty is a steal.
