Published April 12, 2024

(BRAIN) — DirtySixer is conducting a crowd-funding campaign to build e-bikes with 36-inch and 32-inch wheels. The company has been selling 36-inch wheel bikes and e-bikes for several years, and teased a 32-inch prototype in 2017. Now it is bringing the 32-inch size to market with the campaign.

According to the brand,  bikes with the 32-inch wheel size is for riders that are about the size of Kobe Bryant (six-foot-six) while the 36er is for someone more like Shaquille O'Neal (seven-foot-one). The 32-inch model will come in XL and 2XL sizes, while the 36-inch model comes in 3XL and 4XL. 

The 32-inch bike comes with DirtySixer Vee T-Monster 2.4-inch wide tires, while the larger wheel comes with the same tire in 2.25-inches wide. The company said the wider tire on the 32-inch bike makes it more of a mountain bike suitable for singletrack riding, while the 36-inch is better suited for gravel roads and commuting.

The e-bikes have aluminum frames and rigid chromoly forks with Bosch's CX Performance mid-drive motor, Tektro brakes and Shimano 10-speed CUES drivetrain. 

DirtySixer made its first 36-inch wheel bike in 2013 and has sold bikes to a handful of NBA stars, including O'Neal. According to the brand, Utah Jazz center Rody Gobert ordered 15 DirtySixers as presents for his teammates.

The company is running a discounted VIP campaign from April 18 – May 6. The main campaign will be May 7 – June 3. MSRP is $8,999 with discounts for early supporters. More information at
