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.
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
Thanks guys. I am looking online right now for parts.
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
im pretty sure almost any frame will run 25/9... my 1998 redline let me have 25/9.
