17/19

Not much in the way of progress but since all the cool kids have them, I'm going to set up a set of 17/19 wheels for the ole Thinja.

This was attached to a pear-shaped rim so i figure I'll build a 19 incher out of it.




Ebay yielded a ktm rear mx rim 2.15 in width. Nest step is to call these guys and get some spokes to make things work out, hopefully.

Next is to decide what tires to get. I already have the knobbies in 18/21 and a set of sumo wheels with street tires in 17/17. The logical mid point might be something like these Shinkos

I need advice on the tire selection and if there is anything special about the tubes i'll need, mixing radial and TT TL etc. etc
