made my choice-CRF100

Well, I made my choice, I chose to go with a CRF100.
I am buying the bike from Tojo92, it is a 2006 and has the BBR suspension on it, nothing fancy, but it will do for the first year while I decide if I actually like racing the mini bikes....
now to decide on the wheels...16's or 17's...
will pick the bike up from him when he comes back to Houston in a couple of weeks...

an 16" front with BT45 will be the cheapest route.

You might also consider looking for a fork brace too.

Good, reliable bike.
Won't hold a candle to the 2T's as far as raw speed, but will be a lot more forgiving and easy to learn on.
Definetly go with 17's as tires would be much more redily available.
Congrats on the new bike.

16in for the cheap. May be a good learning tool not having the best tires or 17's. You will have to ride that much better.

Excellent choice, it would be ideal to have the 2 smoke and thumper later on if you liked TMGP.
Congrats!

Obed,

Nice talking to you today. I am sure you will enjoy the bike. Here is the post on SMJ I mentioned. I PM'd him an offer and it may have been to low as I haven't had a response. He is probably asking a pretty fair price. New BT45's aren't too expensive. I ran them on my old FZR600 and they were better than expected, I think they would do fine for TMGP. My old F7 endurance bike worked well with a slick on the rear and a Michillen Gazelle scooter tire on the front!

http://www.supermotojunkie.com/showt...Rims-and-Tires

I have the title in hand, will just need to swing by College Station to pick up the bike when I head back to Katy.

Thanks,

Staton

I was looking at getting a complete set of 17's from Cam, but it looks like he sold them already (while I was deciding on a bike,,, old and slow I am)
and he is not currently building wheels and listed another site to ask about wheel building...
I wanted to just be able to swap out wheels if I wanted to ride at the farm and put the others back on for the track...
so I will just look around and see what pops up.. I have time...

their site does not list a fork brace for the crf100.. I sent them an email asking about one ...
they do list them for all the other bikes though...

His site has been jacked up for a while. I had to email as well. Just make sure you specify that you're running 16/17 size tires. He makes a flat brace for 12" tires and a raised brace for the larger diameter ones.

I want to add to this...

I wouldnt spend the money on 17's unless you plan on upgrading the front end to have disc brakes

If you have 17's laced up to the stock forks and later want to upgrade the front to have disc brakes you will have to buy another hoop/spokes and pay to have another wheel built

drum brakes are more than adequate for sprint racing, i run them aswell as others.. if you want to endurance race then disc brakes are preferred

its all on how deep your pockets are

This ^.

Obed, if you want to look at a bike with 16s and a fork brace, we can figure something out after new year's and you can try mine out.

Hey obed john at p1 racing can order the same wheels that cam orders. I believe he will also lace and true them for the same price as cam. Plus you save on having to ship the hubs. Give him a call, thats who im going thru. Im going to lace and true them myself. Its not to hard just takes a while to get them straight. Whats the worse that could happen, you take them in and pay for them to be trued by john no biggie. Its worth a shot, plus i wanted to build mine all by myself. Keep me updated on your progress.

are you going to use your stock hubs, or keep them for dirt use?
