Are BIG wheels done -What's trending now?

Seems the BIG wheel thing is slowing down. What's the next trend?

Steam Roller front?
21" fronts are popular now?

Ideas?

I think we are in that dip between hot custom trends. Where people realize their 50K scooters are worth about 10K and walk away from the customizing thing. In a year or three there will be something new, and a new group of riders willing to fund it by spending at the custom shops.

I'm thinking the fat front tire... Seeing a bit more now than a couple of years ago

Yup. And I'm loving that look. Joe from Xtreme Dimensions posted a pix in His FB of a fat front fender that matches my CVO. Talk about getting the wheels spinning if I don't get a new bike this year....

Really fat front tires , but the cost is holding the trend back. I never was a fan of those big skinny front tires

Yeah the fat fronts are becoming more popular, but I think the "next big thing" (it's already been picking up steam over the last few years) is Performance Oriented Baggers

"Fast baggers" was around before the big wheels. It's just suddenly gotten very easy because of all the bolt on kits.

I thinks trikes will be a thing with the RUB's for a while. People will see how much money they can pack into them.

After that its probably time for the nostalgia thing to make another comeback. Especially with all the old standbys that have been kicked to the curb recently. Dyna Super Glides are already starting to run up in price.
