What other wheels fit?

Does anyone know what other year/make/model bikes’ wheels fit the 790?

No idea, but would like to know if the 690 wheels will fit the 790. I would be interested in how a 160 tyre would go on the 790.

Really?! I feel like that is way to thin! The response from the 180 I feel is fantastic (granted I am coming off a 190).

Keep the rubber side down!

Being a chain drive makes adaptation fairly easy. But tbh - for the track - you might as well have a natter with companies that make race wheels. Dymag springs to mind.

On normal roads I would personally steer clear of C/F. I've seen too many examples where C/F strength has been compromised because the materials have been damaged by road detritus. Light Aluminium or magnesium - no qualms.

Small steps - Day by Day.

What about a 19" front for "adventure". Anyone out there looked into that possibility?

I think we'll find that dramatically different wheel sizes screw up the ABS and speedo.

A friend of mine had his CF rear wheel frag mid-corner. I'll never trust them for the street.
