The Pickard Is A Little Beefier With A Better Clamping System And Can Be Purchased In Black Anodized. Both Are Great. I Have The Hhi(26" Wheel) And Love Mine. Straight As An Arrow And Easy To Install.

Thx for your input. I was contemplating on exchanging the Pickard for the HHI.

However the HHI uses rubber forks stops as opposed to the aluminum stops on the Pickard kit. The only guy I know who has used both said the HHI rides better due top the rubber (or maybe urethane) fork stops.

Custom glide what else did you do to get the 26 on the HHI tree. I want it but don't want to cut up a new bike.

If you don't want to cut your frame (preferred method) , Kewl Metal (has its pros and cons) would be your best option....Arlen Ness, Tricky trees, etc that say you can run a 26 with just they're trees isn't the route you want go. The wheel with "fit" but you will be let with no suspension travel = shitty ride

Good ain't cheap, cheap ain't good.......

Good look Sic, just not sure if I'm ready to cut it. Want the 26 but probably will go 23 and a tree. Then knowing me when it comes to it I may just jump abroad the 26 crew!
