So my maxi has snowflakes and my magnum has Spokes.
I noticed that the maxi kinda starts rides rough at higher
speeds even on SUPER smooth ground. Kinda like there is a lump in the tire. I have inspected the wheels and tires very close and there appears to be nothing out of the ordinary. Tires are only a couple months old Repacked bearing and a new axle not too long ago. but the problem stays the same.
The Best description i have is seems like the wheels are not balanced, feels like driving a car that needs the wheels balanced.
I took it to the motorcycle shop but the wheels were just a bit too small to fit on there balance machine. The guy there told me how they used to balance wheels before the machines were around. I tired that several times and by that standard the wheels seems to be in balance.
Now my Magnum with the spokes and exact same tires rides like a dream. Even at 50+ its smooth as glass.
So I'm curious if anyone else has noticed a funny feel to the snowflakes?
are all snowflakes like this or did i just get a bummed set?
I'm working on a new build and really like the look of snowflakes but if that's just the way they are I'm gonna ditch them for the spokes. Gotta take Smooth over style?
