19/17 vs 19/18

Using the 19'' with the 18'' rear works good and does give it quicker steering close to the 17/17 set. It will put more weight on the front endfor beter steering on-road. The 19/17 set keeps it closer to stock geometry which is still great to ride off-road, just not faster like the 21/18 can.

The one thing that's great about the 19/17 set is the amount of tire choice's they have, and the handling it has both on/off-road.

You could try the 19/18 first then see if it works good for you, and get the 17'' rear later if it's not working good for you.

Thanks Zach

hi..Woody chiming in,,,IMHO,,if it's real "canyon carving " performance your seeking,,, the 19/17 is far superior...it's two grinning thumbs up from all who've ridden/ experienced it...and all Zach shared is on the money,,,there are some who have been satisfied with the 18" rear

Opinions?
