    Default 90mm Flywheels

    So I've had a broken toe for about 3 weeks now and it was finally good enough to go ride a garage on sunday. I had been sitting staring at my 90mm Flywheels aching to ride them and I got to....I threw them on my Carbon/wood EVO and hit the garage. WOW...fast is the only word I can say.

    Yup.

    I really like them. Smooth ride, good speed, and they're quite predictable.

    do you think 97mm would be too much? If your going to go big why not all the way?

    90s are certainly VERY smooth. Mine feel pretty sluggish but I think thats because mine are 75a. They seem pretty nice for downhill so far. Still needs some further testing. If only it would stop raining!

    I have Gen II & III 83mm Flys, 90mm Flys, and 97mm Flys. The 90's are truly the perfect match between speed and predictable grip. The only time I run the 97's are under straight, fast bombing.

    I agree with that. I'm actually most comfortable on Gen II 83mm Flys in garages. They seem to drift the most predictably.
