His local mechanics, have advised him to go one size smaller (diameter) on the front wheel, which "should" improve slow speed characteristics of the bike, while not taking away from highway cruising.....


I'm pretty sure he has no idea what "top heavy" bikes are really capable of.


Thumbs up to the video.
i think he needs suspension adjustments rather than wheel modifications, and rider training, maybe a clue
