    Motolites with FR Lowers question

    I saw a bunch of motolites listed in the set up thread with FR Lowers - does this basically just mean beefier chainstays? And if so, do they provide for the ability to run wider and more high volume tires in the rear of Motolites? Or are they just for strength only?

    Thanks!

    The FR lowers were for 2005 models because on 2005 they came with narrow ones. You could only put a tire up to 2.1 in the rear. With the FR I think you could go up to 2.4, depending on the tire. On 2006 you have the FR lowers standard...
