Another Wannabe makes the big move!

Post  Big-X on Mon Jun 24, 2013 9:39 pm

Just took the wheel and new GYTT 205-60-16 for mounting and balancing. i am so anxious to try out the new setup.  
I finally took the plunge after buying and mounting 3 new rear tires in 5000 miles! All have succumbed to punctures.  The last one had less than a thousand miles on it.  
Thank you all for your messages to the forum. It gave me the information necessary to make the move.

Just took the bike out for it's first darkside ride.  I was expecting to have to wrangle it a bit, but was very pleasantly surprised.  The bike handles great.

Thanks everyone for all the information you have posted.  It helped convince me.

Hello All, I know the answer is in this forum somewhere, but I can't find it, ( slightly computer illiterate!). If my memory serves me... I think I saw a 150/70-18 with 2 oz. of Dyna beads was recommended for the front? Also, do I want /need a radial on the front as well? I have the Goodyear triple tread on the rear and LOVE it! Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! jevers
