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.

Sorry about idea how it went black...tried to change to a readable font with little luck..

6'4" so no issue touching ground...I love the stock GSA wire wheels but would like a 21" front since I ride almost 100% off road...but HP2 wheels are above my $$$$ range and tubeless is so simple off road that I will stick with what I have..

Thanks again, great report.
