8 June 2012 - 8:45Going With the Flow
So yesterday I alluded to some upgrades I was going to be performing on Weapon X.
The first upgrade is already in process. New wheels. Well sorta. New rims is more like it. Stan’s has released the Flow EX.
This is basically the same treatment/rim profile as the Crest and Arch EX, but in a Flow width. As the newer rims are wider, I’ll be gaining more volume from the tire. How much wider? The inner width of the Flow is 22.6, the EX is 25.5, so 3mm. It doesnt sound like a lot, but trust me it makes a big difference. Awesome.
I have the rims in stock right now, just need to find the time to re-lace the wheels. With good weather on tap for the weekend, I’ll likely not get it done as I’d much rather be riding my bike than working on it. If all goes well, it will be a weekend chock full of rides. And dogs of a different color.
