      Is it possible to fit an 18″ rim to the rear wheel? I’m looking at green-lane capable tyres and can’t find anything in 16″.

      Hi James,

      You can fit an 18″ rim to a a Supa5. I did it a while ago for green laner and one of our Bristol section members has also done it. There were two snags as I recall. The first is the centre stand cross piece which will rub on the tyre if you get to ambition about tyre size and in the same vein, there is not a lot of width in the s/arm.
      I got round the former problem by beating the cross tube flatter in the middle section.

      If have one in my shed with a tyre fitted which you could borrow if you live close enough to pick it up (Nr Bath). My contact details are in the magazine (membership co-ord)

      Regards

      Peter

      Hi Peter,
      thanks for the very kind offer; I’ll take you up on it if that’s ok?
      I’m just East of Exeter so not a million miles away – I’ll get in touch and arrange something in the new year.
      Regards,
      James

      hi, a mitas C-01 3.50-16 is an adequate off-road tyre imho. 10.5 cm wide. just in case you can’t wait for the 18 inch wheel, that is …

      best, max ~:)

      I’ve had a look at the Mitas tyres and I think I’m going to have to go to an 18″ rim, I want to compete in the MCC Lands End Trial and have to be road legal.
