Duh, I didn't remember that the Spacely doesn't come in anything bigger than 30T. My mistake.

I'm seeing more 2.10/1.85 and or 2.20/1.95(front/rear) tire setups in bike checks around the planet. Any significance?

Yep. There aren't a lot of parks for BMX, so many BMXer's have turned to dirt jumping for "big air." The wider front tire gives traction while the skinnier rear tire gives less rolling resistance and a lighter wheel.

Hmmm...you know, I don't wish to explain that because my post was referring to the setup for dirt riders. If park people like to ride that way too, that's fine with me. My posts are general as not to include or shun any particular person.

I wish it captured the lavender fork rather than turning it white.

I save it till I put new grips and get new tires. Speaking of tires . .I'm not sure what I want. My options are ANIMAL GLH TIRE, MAXXIS MIRACLE TIRE and the M tread, and the shadow conspiracy undertaker(I'm not positive on if those are what they have) Mainly I want something that will reduce chances of flats(not just pinch flats). Hrmmm. . I'm thinking the Maxxis M tread and possibly the shadow conspiracy one.

shadow sucks, and maxxis doesnt have the high psi rating. get the animails or something else that can take 90 + psi. ruebens odysseys, and those new fit tires look dope.
