This confused me until I realized that when you said "improved the tendency" you meant the improvement to be that it does not fly so easily. I had just seen another thread where a guy had improved the tendency of his bike to do wheelies and of course he meant the opposite--that now it wheelies more easily.

Anyway, that new wheel is fabulous! And the hub cap is a really nice touch.

I have taken many pictures of my dogs so I realize that to get those two beauties to pose so perfectly you probably had to shoot 2000-3000 exposures just to get a couple worthy of posting. Nice job!
