    New things for the Tractor

    I had a good laugh on this one. SO, I got a bright idea to mount some 1.25" Panaracer street tires on the Tractor, and the end result is a good, fast ride (moved to 32x12 from 32x18), but the rims are 1/8" wider than the tires are. OPPPPPPPPPPPPSSSSSSSSSS. I'll just need to watch my cornering. Hehe.

    Um, prolly 26"x1.5", Vuelta DH rims, 32 hole. I gather they are really hard to get rims now.

    Looks good.
    I'm going to be trying something similar in a couple of weeks.
    I broke my thumb about 5 weeks ago which has forced me to miss a few races. There is a road hill climb in a couple of weeks that I figured my thumb could handle, but I want to fly the team colors, so it'll be skinnies on the Singular

    Put a green or yellow chain on it and you're there.

    Um, if I had a yellow chain, I would do it. Don't know about green though, getting the right shade might be hard to do.

    HEHE..........

    See everyone, Sparty is a bad influence!

    Found a yellow chain from KMC, 1/8" BMX , 8 bucks. I'll see if I can find one in a BMX shop on the island, shipping costs to here are crazy!!!
