I have a 1984 bluebird flat front. It currently has 11R22.5 all around.
I bought it a couple of years ago, and the first thing that I had to do was replace the steerers. I did this with new tires.
Now the drive tires are perished, and will need to be replaced within the next year or so. I was thinking of replacing them with a bigger size, to try and gain higher gearing. Does anyone have any experience with this?
One of the biggest problems with the bus is cruising at 65 I am reving the hell out of the engine which could really use another gear. I figured that instead of messing with the rear end reduction (which sounds like a can of worms). Bigger tires could give me a 10% reduction at the road. Any thoughts on this? Has anybody tried this...what tire size would you recommend?
Handcycles and recumbent trikes
