20 inch Front Wheel??
Posted January 10, 2001 - 02:43 PM
Has anyone seen or heard the results of the new 20 inch fronts? Will tube and tire choice be limited?
I'm thinking about giving it a try. Before I do I want some feed back from the most brutal and informative site on the net.
out of round, huge

Haven't seen you since Stoneyford at turkey time, haven't seen Mike since way before your Moab trip. We will all have to ride soon. I just had knee surgery on Tuesday, so I am not riding for a few weeks but will be Jones'd to go soon. I spoke with John in Granite bay a week or so ago and he was going to attempt the new years ride with you all as well as I but I ended up with the family obligation and John had blue balls for a while. Hope to see you all at Stoney or elsewhere soon.
Mike in Roseville.

I'm in the process of collecting parts for a 20 inch front wheel. The current bind is Excel is only making black anodize rims right now. If you want black front rim you are in good shape. Wheel Works in So. Cal has the black rim in stock and quoted me $140. The natural finish Excel 20 inch is supposed to be available this month.
I have only read about the 20 inch wheel in Dirt Rider. The story is a bigger front contact patch, better braking and conerning, blah blah. The only reason I want to try it is for better floation in sand.

They made everyone ride round like demented rocking horses.
Also, I remember when honda started selling their CBR900 fireblades (of which ive had 2)with 16 inch front wheels, saying they were the mutts nuts, only to change back to 17's 8 years later.
Ring any bells?
