Wheels & Tires Help

4/16/2011 6:27 AM

To anyone who can help......

I have not rode in many years, but have finally broke down and started putting my bike back together.

Everything will be changed, other than the frame and forks.

I have a 1999 Standard Lengthy - which is a obviously heavier than the bikes made today and has an American BB. However, the frame is in excellent condition and I do not want to part with it at this time. Technically it is a freestyle frame, but I am going to use it for dirt and parks. I talked with Jess at Standard and he said it is a good all around frame.

My question is - What complete front wheel and complete rear cassette wheel would you guys recommend? I do not want to break the bank, but I do not want to purchase wheels that can't withstand consistent dirt and park riding. From what I understand, I should run a 9T driver and a 25T sprocket. Also, what tires (and what sizes) would be recommended for the front and back?

Thanks in advance.

personally I don't run them, but from what I hear these wheels are great for the money

The Odyssey Aitken Tires are good for anything, i used to run one in the front

personally, i run 2.10' in the back and 2.25' in the front, but it is all about personal preference

the gear ratio is also all about personal preference, 25 - 9 is the standard, but it's not uncommon for people to ride 28 - 10, 28 - 9, etc

Two Wheel sets, I would just get Primp hubs laced to orbits or sun big ballers on albes, comes out around $250 plus they build the wheels.

Tires get Two tires a smaller one in the back, and a bigger in the front. Example 1.95 rear, 2.25 front.

And ratio, I run a 32/9 and it feels great

You wana get good wheels ones that will last, a strong rear, front doesnt need to be as strong because it doesn't take the abuse the rear does.

Those wheels aren't just great for the money, they are some of the best wheels you can get!

you might not be able to run 25-9 with that frame it was made for 44-16 you might be able to go 30-11
