Surprisingly, the heavy front wheel (16 pounds AIR) doesn't change the handling of the bike to a perceptible degree (IMO). Remember it's a cruiser and not made for screaming around corners. Recently I switched the motor to a steel MTB (which I'll take a picture od and submit soon) and "de-electrified" the Snake Eyes with a 29" front MTB wheel and a 2.35" X 26" rear tire. Been a blast to ride semi-MTB (if there is such a thing). Even though the headset is very basic, the extra torque didn't seem to affect it.
