Thanks everyone for the tips for the front tire. I tried it out yesterday and wow what a difference! The biggest difference is when the bike is leaned over, it no longer feels like it's on ice skates! It even took me about 30 min to adjust to the difference, but now I feel like I can carry 2x the corner speed in most corners! Question: Is there as big a difference when changing the back from the stock to a D756 or something similar? Also if anyone wants a free stock front tire with little visible wear, you're welcome to mine. You pay the shipping and the tire is all yours.
