Google works best for searching. I put: adv, 19/17, wheels, in the search bar and google spat out over 2000 hits. Notables include:

I assume you ride a 950/990 adventure...what do you want to know? I've got Alpina 19/17 on my 2012 990 R

i want to know the pros and con of switching. last yearn i drove about 8400 miles cross country w 17/45 sprokets ( the standard ones) and the oem rims (07 990 av), this year i planned on doing more off raod so i swithched to 16/42 sprokets but had to bail due to last mn work and drove 1400 miles back on pavement. its uncomfortable and i want to b more comfy but yet being able to go on a 3 days off rad excursion.
once uppon a time i found a thread that had all the info but cant seem to find it again.
