You better watch that car tire.You will bust out in a big firey ball.LOL,just messin.I actually got the bike out yesterday for a first good ride since i got the new metz on the front.The X rides and handles like a dream.I couldnt be more happier with the car tire on the back.The bike is a lil more sensitive to irregular spots in the asphalt but wont take you long to adjust.Another plus is it makes for a good burn out with sound effects too.lol

These pics aren't the best quality (no cell phone takes good pictures), but I wanted to get something posted up since it has been over a week.

I'm either going to polish or powder the rotors and caliper. Not sure yet.

As far as the dark side, I kept saying all weekend that I wasn't sold. Seemed squishie. I was running at 44psi-41 psi and didn't want to go any higher. Well, yesterday I put a DIFFERENT gauge on it and it was 39psi. Put it up to 43 based on THAT gauge and it feels much better. I'm not 100% sold yet but I feel more comfortable than I had.

Straight roads and navigating traffic is a dream. It just doesn't feel solid and comfortable cornering. It feels much better at 43psi based on the second gauge than the first.

I won't get into the debate of save vs unsafe. I will just say it's not for everyone. Me personally, I like it. I am running a Firestone Champion HR I believe. The size you can fit varies by model. What fits a 1800C is different than a 1300C (rim size, shock setup, etc.).
