I don't know. My bike came full of oil and is only down a few hundred CCs.

I was always told buy the widest the bike could handle. Funny how you think you got a good handle on some things and then realize you don't know shit! Oh well!

Anybody got a lead on someone who can make patches?

No, I want to have a patch made up for a Jersey. I have the design but want it imposed onto an embroidered patch.

Next physics question- when going around a corner in a car (assuming perfect 50/50 front/back and side/side weight distribution, same tire pressures, suspension pressure, tire brand/type, etc), which wheels do the majority of the work- inside or outside?

Hint- if you ski or ice-skate, you may know based on which foot is easier to lift given proper technique.

Im not going on what he said I just quotedhim beacuse it was the first link I could find to that point of view

Quote:
They actually interviewed one of the chief mechanics at the supercross races on that very topic. ac717 is pretty much spot on in describing the benefits on hard pack. the only additional thing the mechanic noted was they opt for thinner tires out doors and softer materials because they are rounder and enable the rider to turn quicker.
