moving up to a big wheel

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 2.15 black excel rear wheel that i will be installing. I will continue using the same hub and spokes though. My question is that i ride "old man style" riding :busted:. My bones don't heel well and I need to work come monday. Slow i go but with lots of fun. I ride desert with some technical stuff, fire roads, some hills. I'm not hammering the throttle much, however, i do get on it, 3rd and 4th gear mostly. I'm going to 110x80x19 tire do i need to change the stock gearing to bring up to stock and if so what size should i go to. I like the stock gearing but i hate the smaller size rear wheel, Also what will i be losing or gaining by going to a larger wheel. Thanks guys:thumbsup:

I went up 1 tooth in the rear. I also am using a 110/80 works great at the track.

Most pro's are using a 2,15 rear rim it makes the tire run more flat.
