This is a short summary of the following post: http://dosimplecarbon.com/fitting-bigger-wheels/ Recently, with a lot of help from @Okami, I was thinking about new approach of mounting bigger wheels to esk8. How do you usually mount a 5-6" pneumatic wheel on a regular truck? The standard practice is to use some kind of extension on the axle. This approach increases the loads on the axle beyond the intended values, this is never a good thing. Now, what if we used mechanics and balanced these new loads? Look at the following diagram:
This approach still needs work and several topics to solve, but I think it has great potential.
Would like to hear your opinion on this.
