well, bad pictures, shooter forgot there's something called "zoom", so had to crop quite a bit....

but bike runs quite well, front springs need to be stiffer, got a find a solution to tuck in the gear lever more and fit a 14T sprocket but other than that its all up to the rider.

even lean angles werent bad considering the mediocre street tires (pro guy passing me was on slicks )

Hey there TG!

I am looking for a set of SM wheels for my XT, and obviously I came up on your thread while searching for info on what wheels would fit. There are a lot of wheels that can be custom made, but they cost an arm and a leg!
In local ads I've found a TZR, which is sold for parts, and I think I could get the wheels really cheap.

Could you give more info on how you fitted these TZR wheels: what spacers, other mods (made a new axle, or maybe changed bearings?) needed to be done? How you fitted the brake caliper, and the adapter you had to make? Please tell everything, I want to soak up the information


P.S. aren't they too small considering these wheels came off a 125cc bike?
