Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Spokes are the inherent weakness of spoked wheels, but mag wheels of all types have a similar weakness: any damage to them may make them unsafe to ride. But if parts are irreplaceable on a mag wheel, the whole thing is a goner. I think the best thing for mabs is 32 or 36hole double wall rim wheels with big flange hubs.

I installed a Sunlite $10 front cargo rack. It looks nice, sort of really finishes the "moped" look, for me. I installed it so I can carry a 1gal can for long rides. It was simpler than replacing the fuel tank and lines.

I put Diamondback Softee BMX v-brake shoes on the bike. I like them. They seem to grip really hard, and have thick pads. They were $2.50 a set!
