Posted by on

Hey Everybody! Welcome back to another episode of the Bolton Ebikes Podcast. I am Kyle Chittock, your host, and the owner of Bolton Ebikes. And I love getting people on the show from other bicycle companies. So today I've got an awesome guest. We have talked via chat and online for years. And we'll get into that in a moment. 

Today, if you want to hear all about bicycles with massive giant 36 inch wheels, and he can tell you all about why, then stick around. I have David, the owner and founder of Dirty Sixer Bikes. 

This is the Bolton Ebikes Podcast.

In today’s episode you’ll learn more about: 

  • Why would someone need a super large ebike and who these are meant for. 
  • How he came up with the name Dirty Sixer.
  • How David has revolutionized the accessibility of bikes for many people who haven’t been able to get them in the right size. 
  • What David’s background is and what brought him to where he is today. 
  • How he has gotten the opportunity to work with players in the NBA and how that has helped him to see how his work could help even more people. 
  • What is next for Dirty Sixer and how that may even be something you can be a part of. 

Thank you to everybody listening to today's podcast. I hope you enjoyed that information about Dirty Sixer Bikes and large wheels, what they could do for you, but very unique bikes.

 I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens with those. I'm hoping one of these days I can get my hands on one of those and, and ride it around so I can give you some firsthand experience, but like any bike, it looks like a ton of fun.

  • Hello Kyle,
    What a delight to hear this! Have not heard any of these yet.. So thanks so much for posting and sharing David’s dirty 36er saga here!
    It’s easy to miss the facts how the tire and bike size could make a big difference in the ride and steering!
    So sorry to hear that he had to break some bones to get motivated to do what he had to do! However, it was a breath of fresh air to hear that there are folks out there care about a simple ebike that fits the person just for the experience and joy of riding one. And to hear someone with an EU take on the industry and how the options and cultural attitude is so different. I would love to see the day where this from of transportation is a much more respected and for the industry to spread far and wide around the US.
    I can also relate a slight bit as I am 6 foot 205 lbs with big hands and feet my shoe size15w! Way difficult to find them and hardly listed on line. Imagine how my foot or anyones foot sits on the bike pedals. Been to France and Italy and they do seem to be a bit more famliy centric so sidewalks exists and more respect for the riders there.
    Edit or trash what you need here but it was a fun hearing this!! Thanks again to you both for the insights.

  • This is such good info. I am 6’3" tall and weigh in at about 178 lbs. I have often felt that even with the largest frame I can buy that it isn’t large enough. Having to lift the seat post to it’s maximum always scares me. The bike itself often shakes at higher speeds. Riding hands free is out of the question. As soon as I lift my hands from the handlebars it starts shaking. I love the whole concept. WD.
