Got another thread (http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=850683
) where got some input on tyre choice but not really wheel size.
These are my options:
- 21"/18" wheels (OE KTM 690EnduroR)
- 17"/17" wheels (690SMC wheels)
Planning 5000km/3000mi trip this summer, probably a little bit more tarmac than gravel. But will be good gravel roads
and mostly not that twisty
. So no mud, sand or rocky stuff
at all, hard packed gravel mostly.
So question is, will 17" front be OK
? Must admit slightly nervous on tarmac on 17"/17" even though got SMC forks/shock so correct height. Nothing I mind and got steering damper anyway but maybe more of an issue on gravel?
Could of course buy a 19" front wheel but prefer avoiding the expense...
