-1 monotubes + 18" stock wheel opinions

so I have finally bought all my front end parts: arlen ness hot legs in black, black cowbells and progressive lowering mono-tubes. after reading many post on this forum I am thinking I will go with following set up.....lowering -1 and leaving my front wheel stock for now. rear end are 12" ohlins (which by the way are great shocks). could anybody please give me their opinion on how the bike with this set up handles ? also how does it compare to -1 and 21" wheel. grateful for any input.

I'm using the standard mono tube with one clip installed, 18" wheel and 12" Ohlin on the rear. With these parts the bike sets level front to rear. If you have the lowering mono tubes be careful to not end up in a nose down stance when using the 18" front wheel.
