Great information and thanks!
Your black font is hard to read against a gray background!
I would LOVE to stay tubeless but the front wheel can't really be sealed properly. Woody can do it but won't warranty it. Eventually one of the spoke ends would push through a bit and compromise the seal. There is a way to go tubeless 21" up front but you need the HP2 wheel to do it and that get really expensive
Those spokes are externally laced, hence tubeless.
I can still use the center and side stand, no problem. The seat migth be slightly higher but I'm 6'4" so I dont' really notice. If I had gone 18" in the back, then yes I'm sure I'd notice the seat being higher.
