Thank you for using an 18" rear wheel. My eyes appreciate it!

You're welcome!


Once I saw the difference between a 16/19 combo and an 18/19, I couldn't not make the change.
The 18" took me forever to track down. THEN I had to find a 19" 9 spoke. THEN I had to adapt both wheels to work with the brakes and pulley. THEN it led to clearance issues with the seat......But in spite of all that it's still better (in my opinion) than a 16" rear on this style of bike.

Yes, I know I have a problem.

No other bike lends itself to customs like a HD Sporty.
