I have been mountainboarding on the beach for a couple of months, and I stumbled onto your page ( http://www.chicagokitesurfing.com/kitin ... dmods.html
) . I am interested in doing this exact thing to my board, but I need more info, like:
How big are the new tires compared to the original tires? (They look like MBS's so I guess they could be the new 9"x2.5" they have out. Mongoose has the bigest tire available that I've found 10.5"x3", but I can't find what size axle they fit on). Whats the best place to get tires from online?
What was the original axle diameter (3/8"
), and where can I get those spindle extensions??
Overall, were there any disadvantages after the conversion (ie. steering loss, loss in upwind ability, etc)?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, because blazing down the beach at 25mph+ and hitting soft sand is one of the worst crashes to experience.
