oh and by the way if you mount your own tires when setting the bead try pledge furniture polish instead of soap. tried soapy water didnt seat completely, broke it back down and sprayed with pledge and around 55psi popped both sides. Smile

Welcome Mikey and Congrats
Although the Metz is a great MT, I'm sure the Douglas CT doesn't seem to ride better, it does !
Enjoy the safer rides for a longer time.
