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.
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?!! ).
Not sure what you are talking 'bout
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.
For information :
I wanna change my front rims.. i'm looking for excel rims and i don't find the good size : 2,15 x 21
I call KTM and they give me the price : 265 euros
It's a bit expensive!!
I call behr saxess rims : Price : 170 euros.. it's better.. and you can purchase rims without problem (no excusivity with KTM..)
ok it's in german but you can find easily what you want..
for example :
But i need some information :
Someone put an other size of rims : 1,60 or 1,85 x 21??
How is it??
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.
So, it's doable and it seems to work well.
