Wheel base


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I just changed my chain and sprockets...stock is 13/50. NOW I'm 13 / 52...

I cut my chain before thinking ahead. It does work, but the wheel base is obviously shortened. I think it effected the stability of the bike, my buddy thinks its in my head..what do you think?

I can tell the difference on a real tight inside rut, if my wheel is moved forward. Other than that I can't tell in just general track riding. Depending on track conditions though, you may very well feel the difference at higher speeds with a shorter wheel base. Especially if your seat sag and front fork placement or incorrect for higher speeds.
