Imagine the fun you could have if you painted the bike in TW200 colors and stickers.

It would also be fun to have a bunch of riders thinking they just got roosted by a TW200 on the trail.......

the tw 14 inch wheel and tire is about the same diameter as the stock 17 inch setup so i used the same gearing with a 47 tooth sprocket.

terrible conditions and 100 degree heat up in the trails but the bike worked 100 percent better than the stock setup. the fat tires were so stable over the soft sand and dirt even with 26 psi in them. i didnt air down because i rode up and back to the trails from home.

used stock gearing this ride too. i had to use the clutch a lot on the steep stuff but no problems. aired down and lower gearing would be the ultimate setup.the drum brake setup worked good for the trails too. i might just keep them on there.
