Re: Doomed to Fail: The SteamRat Build!
So it looks like if I want to keep the EN450 19" front wheel I'm gonna have to source up a different front end. the GS forks are listed at 37mm, the EN and KZ at 36mm. I noticed that with the EN wheel mounted on the GS axle and slotted into the GS forks, the spacing needed to keep the wheel and rotor in line to the caliper, with matching space on the opposite side seemed to push the forks out more at the bottom, further apart than they are at the triple. So it looks like I may end up buying up parts for a KZ or EN front end next.
Didn't take pics of it.
I'm thinking I may still keep the GS front end and wheel though. Back wheel too. Run 19/15 for warm weather, find some knobbies to run the 18/16 for a winter setup, see how long I can keep the bike out when winter hits.
