I have a rigid and I have a new wide 2 under wide springer. I really like the looks of the wide glide. Wondering about the performance of the tubes vs. springer. Any input? I will be running a narrow 21" wheel and tubes will be 2"-3" under.
I agree, it kinda comes down to a "look" thing. I'm into long bikes, and while a Springer would look cooler, the WG gives a better ride. Now with that said, I'm speaking of a Paughco, Columbus, or DNA springers (and afew old ones I never found out who made), thats al lI have had expieriece with. I'm sure a Sugar Bear springer would give a better ride on a long bike.
I prefer a stock inline springer. I have been running them for 26 years, feel they track better. no leaky seals, springer with a ride control will not pogo out of control @ high speeds when going over mogules in the pavement!
I like the looks of the springer. But like the wg better. Might just find the glige and put the springer in the corner just in case. Hate tieing up 700 smakers in the corner though. Really appreciate the input.
