Default 26" Wheel on XC, bolt on rake kit.

26" Wheel on a XC... sits about at factory height. Rides like a dream. No heavy feeling... handles like stock.

Front end looks good but now the back end kills the overall look.. unless you give the back end some bigger shoes this won't work (for me that is)...

I have a 23" with a 6 deg rake, it definitely changed the ride a little. I have also ridden a 26 with raked neck and it most definitely changes the ride quite a bit.

That big ol' rim makes the bike look kind of goofy IMO but that is just me.

Looks amazing. I agree that it's not for me, but I still think it looks great. Very custom and unique. I would consider doing do a 21", but that's tall enough for me. Great looking bike.

Stage 1 air filter with the rubber strip removed.
Freedom Performance true duals.
PCV with Dyno tune.
Lloydz VM1-DR cams.
Lloydz ATS.

Ok, fine.....

I really like the back tire. It looks functional and sturdy.
