    ...straight, true, strong...unlike the BMW stockers! :evil

    My rear wheel is really wonky...over 2.5 mm runout axially, 1.2 mm radial. I would sent to you for the treatment, but BMW has indicated they will repair under warranty, so I'm not letting them off the hook.

    Pavement really eats up the TKCs, so a second set of wheels may be in order anyways.

    I will call.

    the $$$ on the first few will be $2k plus the difference the new sized rims plus extra disc will cost...circa $300-400

    am working on a second version front hub that will have a disc adapter to allow you to use your oem discs with ABS....the current Superlte I hubs need aftermarket discs,,,and only the Braking disc has the potential for possibly incorporating an ABS ring,,,,that is also currently being resolved,,,,

    holler with your ideas,,,,

    ok

    in a nutshell:

    1150 GSA and make it the best 1150 GSA bombproof for heading south of the Rio Grande to the great unknown: Farkle, farkle, farkle... Which brings me to U :deal ..

    It will be my only bike for sometime and wish the wheels to be bombproof and if I can "improve" on off pavement without KILLING road handling then thats what I want! I can always go back to my stock rim for highway long, long, long miles!

    But I am an old caver, long dist hiker (2000 miles hikes) and national parks person... So I think u know where I would llike to go! I may even build a small trailer to pull instead of doing the back seat "bicycle tote mod" .. ( the trailer is not meant for the South America stuff - just a trailer and at least it will be eazoer to see me!) ... plus I think it is safer.. not to hijack my own post... but back to 2 and 1150 GSA rims for a true adventurer road and "off road" traveler!

    :1drink HEEEEEEEEEEELP PLEASE!
