Default Re: Mongoose XR-75 MTB Weed Eater Friction Drive

Great job! Looks like a good tire choice. If you can get a rubber hose to slip fit tightly over the socket, the grip will improve and it wears a pretty good while. On my full suspension Mongoose I mounted the motor mount clamp/pivot to the swing arm just above the rear brakes. That way it is not having to travel with the suspended frame of the bike. With a proper roller tire wear in not too bad I got over 1200 hilly miles out of my last one. Would go way further on flatland. Keep tweaking it Looks great so far!
