is that my only options because i was not planning to go with a 12inch back tire and same for the paddle tire because i am still planning to do lots of trails and a bit of paved roads and i do not want to modify my swingarm...

sand is a 50's enemy. avoid if at all possible!

i can ride riverbed sand with some luck, 3rd pinned is where you gotta keep it. lean back so the front tire isnt pushing. its kinda like getting up on plane, but sand instead of water.

beach/dune sand is impossible. get a run from the beach and hit it wfo and only go a couple hundred feet. then you gotta carry it back though sand. uhh.

i hate sand

they wont go through sand for shiet in stock form. Even when totally built they are hard to ride. Just throw a huge motor in it and it should get through a little better:ride:

why not just get a cheap rear wheel and put a paddle on it and swap it out when you go to the sand?

U need a big tire and plenty of power to ride the sand. U could put a paddle on but w/o the power to turn it you may as well forget about it. A 88 isn't enough to do it either.

It would blow your bike away in the sand.

wow thats amazing. really. wow.:blah:

dont air down your tire without a rimlock, you will rip the tube and destroy your tire, with any hard hits your rim too.
