I have a rim lock on the rear only because it was suggested for longevity of the mousse. I'll let the tire service decide if they want to mess with them.

Myself and Ned along with Jonah are teamed up with Rally Pan Am. Tim Morton of Baja Bound will be the mechanic for Ned and I. I originally thought I'd want to wrench on the bike or at least help with the maintenance but after all the work I've done on this thing and the number of times I've taken it apart and put it back together I really hope I don't have to touch it at all during the rally.
