CrossTourer with VFR1200 rim
on: October 01, 2013, 04:22:38 PM
Last weekend I went to Motorland Aragon to watch the MotoGP races.
On the bike park I saw this CT with a road rim and 190mm wide tyre ...
Has anyone seen this before ?
Or has anyone experienced it ?

What a coincidence, I was only thinking about doing this a couple days ago and wondering where I could get a VFR rim from.
I think this would make a great improvement if you to only use the CT on the road, but then you would have both so you could swap if you planned on doing some gravel.   :152:

You could change out the rear wheel for VFR without issue (if you used a 190-55) as the rolling diameter is the same as the stock 150-70 wheel tyre combo but you could not change the front to 17 without TC and ABS calibration issues due to different rolling diameters.

The front wheel had no changes; it was 19 with road tyre.
