    Aurel....I am assuming that your thinking that tire lasted 4 months...sorry it does read like that but unfortunately no...I meant that I kept riding on the rim for 4 months...just changing tires when they wore out. :evil

    Actually, I was wondering. What wheel does that belong to? Not many guys have the one brake conversion in SA, on the 950.

    So that means that it may be a DID, but has the anodising colour of the Behr.

    Wanna clear it up for me? Cos I cant imagine a DID doing that, unless you wacked it real hard running real low pressures.

    I managed to get my hands on a brand new front hub, so I think when the bank account allows me I may send it out to Woody's to be mated with a new front rim (Pyn's A60 is a good idea). I'd love to do the rear as well, but it works fine.

    As for my new stock rim (replaced under warranty) it now has 1 or 2 smaller flat spots in it, but the change in suspension makes (as we all know) a huge difference and it has seen the same sort of abuse (right George?!! :lol3 ).

    As noted in other threads, none of the SE guys are reporting bent rims....so far. I also want to think that lacing one of those rims onto an ADV hub shouldn't be a problem.

    I'm running an A60 that Woody built onto the stock hub on my SE.

    The construction is a bit compromised in that it's 2 cross one side, 3 cross on the other, to account for the indexing issue. Woody assures me that it's still a strong wheel and he knows his stuff, so I don't question that.

    The wheel has held up to everything I've thrown at it thus far, which is not that much honestly, as I haven't had a chance to really explore with that bike in a while.

    But, I was concerned that the 1.6 would be less desirable on the road, and on the SE, I actually found I like the handling better than I did with the 1.85. :dunno

    So, it's doable and it seems to work well.
