Query for scrambler fans...

I'm in a position to decide what size front wheel to put on my R90 scrambler build. I've got a modified rear and XR600 forks, so the bike sits up higher than a normal airhead. I have a nice beefy 21" wheel for when I go truly offroad.

I'm having a second front wheel built for street and fireroads. I know 19" is the standard, but I am tempted to go with 18" for the option of a wider front tire (like a 4" K70) and a bit quicker handling on backroads. The difference in rake/trail is miniscule...

Any thoughts on this...?
