niiiice, looks like you have a really tight set-up. how do you like the weirwolf's? those are some big rubbers for sure. (rubbers for your unit, insert jokes here). hows the clearance in the rear with such big tires? i was considering running a 2.4 in the front and a 2.3 in the back, but your set-up makes me think. my 06 should be here pretty soon, can't wait. oh, and how tall are you?

I love the Weirs for everything except sticky mud and snow; that said I am asking santa for some 2.5 Nevegals for the winter. There is rear clearance a-plenty, I think I could run up to a 2.7 on those rims w/no issues whatsoever. I am 6'1, 32 inseam. Enjoy your '06, they look like sweet hot coffee!

Okay... I'll be the geek to ask... any idea what it weighs?
Nope, haven't had the chance to weigh it yet. I figure I'll wait until I get my Instigator fork in, since I'm sure it will weigh more than the aluminum placeholder.
