    Swapping the 19 for a 17 on a Rally

    Wondering if anyone has tried swapping the 19" wheel for a 17" on a Capo Rally, and if so did it ride okay? I have a set of Anakee Wilds on right now which are great but the rear has just about had it after nearly 4k. I would like to get a second set of wheels from a Dorsoduro with full street tires to swap, for commuting to work. I know they changed the geometry on the front end to account for the 19.

    I don't think it would work too good. They changed the rake and trail on the Rally by moving the fork mounts and fork offset. I would think dropping to a 17" would seriously mess up handling. Why not just throw road tires on the rally? or get another set of rally wheels to mount road tires and have another set for off-road? They would cost about the same as the Dorso/RSV4 wheels.

    Is there anyone in the Kansas City area that has a spare 17" I could borrow to try this out? I can't find any deals on a stock set of Rally wheels, were as there are a tone of cheap rsv and dorso wheels on the market. I am trying to be some what cost effective, and a brand new set of Rally wheels is north of $1200.00 plus rotors.

    You may end up wanting a steering damper also.
