Re: DC 730 MINI Question

"Yah" = Yes, it will fit.  You need to run a mini wheel though in order for it to have the reach.  I've had 1-3/8" wheels on our Pro Racer before and had to choke way up on the brakes, and I also have a DC730 and I'm certain it will fit.

Re: DC 730 MINI Question

Re: DC 730 MINI Question

maybe slot the 730 the .125 inches. a milmeter is the thickness of a credit card. think i have enough room, if it was a really big problem and i just wanted to use the 730 i could weld some material to it, hopefully it does not go that far.

although you are right you do have to bring in the rear tire to get the 740 to work from what i have seen. but i think that guy was using 20.175's
i post i link to the picture of it...

Re: DC 730 MINI Question

Im talking about diameter of the rim.  138 is much larger rim diameter than 175 or 150

Re: DC 730 MINI Question

A 1-3/8" rim has a smaller width, than a 1.50 or 1.75" rim, you are right.  That's not what I'm talking about.

A 1-3/8" rim has a larger diameter than a 1.50 or 1.75" rim.  This is why, if you run 1-3/8" rims, you normally have to use a short brake like the DC730.

Re: DC 730 MINI Question

It's almost comical.

Okay, a 20 x 1-3/8" rim is 451 mm in diameter.
a 20 x 1.5 (or 1.75) rim is 406 mm in diameter.

Because the tire is smaller on the 1-3/8" wheel, the overall diameter is not quite so much bigger.

I tell ya' again, you can put a DC730 on a HPR, but you need to use a 20 x 1-3/8" rim if you do it.

Re: DC 730 MINI Question

the difference is 1.7716 inches from 20x1.375 from 20x1.50 or 401mm for the 20x1.50 & 451mm bead for the 20x1 3/8

keep your rims to, hopefully they go to someone deserving smile
