On the C5, I think the 18" wheels were a mistake, and they need to return that to 19" wheels, or at least a 19" wheel on the front.It was common back in the old days to use a 19" front and 18" rear.My Ducati 750 bevelhead twins had 19" front and 18" rear, and had a leading-axle fork too, and it handled like it was on rails.There are enough comments about the C5 feeling "light and twitchy" at higher speeds that the added rotational stability of a 19" wheel would make sense, too.And the 19" front wheel looks very good on that modified C5 that ScooterBob did.
I have an AVL Electra 2009. Will it help to put 19inch wheel no teh front. How about the gear sprocket.
I like the idea of a 18" rear and 19" front, that will allow me to run tires I'm familliar with. A lot of the bikes I've had were set up that way. I'm positive a 19" front will get rid of most if not all ot the light twitchyness.
Well, I'm home alone so I propped the bike up straight and measured down the fork leg with a yard stick, I had to use a level for a plumb bob but that should work shouldn't it? I measured 3 times and came up with a measurement of 4 5/8" when I have help I'll try again.
