Pot stiring question

if you are talking about your 250F, it'll have a 19 incher

modern mx bikes all have 19" and offroad/cross country have 18" (atleast the KTM xc bikes, not sure about the others)

NSMB Light DH bike build off 7+"

When properly done, ghetto tubeless will work with virtually any tire (UST or NON UST).

There are dozens of posts on this board about how to set up ghetto tubeless they can take you through it step by step.

thats what i was thinking after i posted.. seeing as how you coat the inside of the tire and rim with sealant

can anyone point me towards the best article? i remember seeing some a few years back but never gave it a second thought because supermonsters were in and titanium or carbon fiber was not :lol:

WTB laserdisk FR rims if it matters

what degreaser to use?

i use solvent, give'r a good scrub and then hang up to dry

i have found that if i clean in solvent and then degrease with superclean (very strong version of simple green) the chain becomes rusty if it gets wet

if you just let it dry with the solvent, it'll continue resisting water for atleast a few rides

Pot stiring question

if mx bike wheels were any bigger the bikes would be crazy tall and goofy.. most mx bikes have 12-13" of suspension front and rear

i'll measure the wheel hight on my mx later, but i know my 21" front tire is taller than my 26" mtb tire

Input on DH frame

full length seat tube doesnt matter much for me.. if its a DH bike you arent going to be pedaling up the hill before your run anyways

also, if you are a serious racer, you should know how high you want your seat, and cut off the extra
