Rear wheel transplant on V-11 Greenie


Recommended Posts

Greetings all.......... was wondering if anyone has changed the 4,5 rear on the V-11 Greenie for a 5,5 from the next Generation V-11?

I know that you can exchange the 4.5 from a Rosso Mandello to a 5.5 but not sure if there would be room on the Greenie for the same transplant?

Thx in advance

Rosso Mandello has the same frame and subframe configurations as the early RedFrames.

You should be able to go either direction, although I can't imagine why you would want to replace the 4.5" wide earlier wheel with the wider, heavier, later 5.5" wheel.

These bikes don't put out nearly enough power to warrant fat rear wheels/tires. If you do decide to "upgrade", just keep in mind that any improvement will mainly be cosmetic, and it will probably decrease handling performance. For reference, I run a 160 width tire on a 4.5" wheel, and my modified V11 is likely more powerful than most. The "narrow" tire is just peachy on it, and I have no interest in anything wider.

But, with that said... to each, their own... so if you want to make it happen anyway, more power to ya. I believe people have made the "upgrade", so there is probably some info to be found by searching the forum.

I have yes. It's a straight bolt on
