I agree with Swagzilla, i got two buddies running 23" with progressive monotubes, 10wt fork oil, and wrap fender installed. They have not run into any problems smooth speeds at 80+. I dont believe all this you need racked triple trees for a 23" but they will try to sell you on it. Dont let um.. peace

they did not , the only thing that they both did was tighten up on the neck bolt. besides installing the progressive monotubes and different fender they rolling good. I have a 23" wheel on the way and have already installed the progressive monotubes can't wait to get that rim mounted up. Bike on jack in the air with no front tire lol am glad it has been raining here for 3 weeks now.
