    Anyone run Expert/Big wheel set on Small wheel bike?

    I just picked up a small wheel 150r but I was wondering if swapping out tires would be worth it. I understand that the Expert model has a longer swing arm and longer forks. Thanks for any help.

    It would be a tight fit to put the wheels and tires from an expert on a non-expert. And a lot less travel because I believe the expert has a little bit longer forks as well.. Never heard of anybody trying this though, good luck!!

    Yes, as mentioned you need a longer swingarm. If it's worth it depends on your riding. Larger wheels are more stable. So if you ride higher speed tracks or sand, it would be worth it.

    Thanks minimeracing. I saw your post about the swing arm. What about the wheel? Wandell, I got the bike to have fun on and found that it is pretty unstable with me on a mx track.
