Default 23 inch front wheel

Was at the dealership this morning and they had a new Cross Country with a 23-inch front end. I think this looks fricking awesome! ImageUploadedByMO Free1385236747.604066.jpg

Did they have to put on a rake kit? How much did this add to the price of the bike? Thanks.

They did have to put a rake kit on. The whole mod was was around $2200 I believe.

I think the 23 is the way to go on the x bikes. It is what I want for my hardball.

2200 is an absolute steal!! I just ordered my 23. 1500 for rotor n wheel and wheel was a blem, minor knick so won't even be noticeable. Tire is 170 Dyna beads 20. Still have to find a fender, anywhere from 250 to 400. Ness trees/rake kit 900. Oh n I think the abs ring is about 150. No labor yet. So like I said that's a steal.

I was thinking the same thing! I can't get the stuff wholesale for that much (not even counting the labor!). It looks like they did a good job matching the stock custom paint too. What a STEAL!
I agree the 23" is a great look for the X bikes. The wife wants me to get it, but I am not sure about risking the great handling of the stock bike. I have heard it makes the steering a bit heavier, and I don't think that would be all bad. Sometimes I think my XC is a bit too light (probably because of coming from HD). I have ridden a XC with the 26" and it had noticeably less suspension travel. You have to lose some travel to avoid fender to fairing contact. I don't think the 23" is the same.
