ABW Baby Bush vs/ 400×4…November 16, 2012
Thought this might be interesting…
If you have a Scott 3200 TW, you have the option of upgrading your TW fork with the Alaskan Bushwheel wider fork. This will allow you to run a much larger and wider TW. For $1050, you can buy the kit which comes with the yoke and BabyBush. But for much less, you can opt for the 400×4. This is the option I chose and am now running on the C180.
This was done not so much for the cost savings, but for the longevity of the tire. Since the majority of my flying is on the tarmac, Wup advised that the 400×4 would be a much much better option. It would work almost as good in the rough, but last soooo much longer whilst on the tarmac.
Here is a photo I shot of both these tire options side by side.
