Re: Wanting to do something different
If you want a different wheel look, then go more practical- a 700c or 27 skinny wheel on the front- like a real "chopper"-
you'll feel the difference peddling right away, and the motor feels it too- a speed increase guaranteed!
recommend- a 3/4" (19mm) rim and a tire no wider than 32mm-
and then you can go (have to go) with a shorter reach LIGHTER alloy brake-
all kinds of weight savings AND a better roll. win-win.
Are those current rims steel? Definitely heavy then-
And it looks like you need a lot smaller rear sprocket for some crusin speed, sans WOT. 36 are great for normal street use, unless very hilly or very heavy.
