are you sure about the ZTR's being rim brake compatible?Kirk Pacenti said:Stan's ZTR 355

i just looked at mine, and while the rim sidewalls appear to be:
parallel (not slanting inwards like many 'disc-only' rims),
they are not:
machined (not a deal-breaker, but not appealing either)
and would provide very little if any real estate (surface area) for a rim brake to pass over/grab onto. very little to no margin of error for pad adjustment either.....
not saying outright that you're wrong, but i would not run a rim brake on mine because with that little amount of braking-area, it would only take one really wet and sloppy ride, and any but the narrowest pads would easily rub into the tire sidewall.
just checked stan's site, the 650b sized ZTR355's are listed as disc-only.
