New 700xx Rider in NY

Been puttering around these forums for a week or so now (great group) so figured I'd introduce myself. My new 700xx should be arriving in about a week thanks to the bonus bucks deals going on with the '08 models. Last time I had a wheeler was a 400ex I only got to ride a few times years ago. Where I moved to where I am now and saw trails behind the neighborhood I needed one again.

Question. What mods would be recommended for trail riding? I already have a 13t sprocket. Bigger tires? How big can/should you go?

Welcome to the xx club. Glad you decided to pick up the sport again. The xx is a lot of bike compared to the 400. I used to live in Westchester but moved to Ohio a couple of years a ago. As far as the mods go I am still new to the bike but have gone to the 13T and it does the job on the trails. For the tires, I am going to stick with the stock until they wear down but a lot of guys here suggest the Razors or Razor 2. The stock fronts push a bit but the rears grab pretty well. As people tag in you will have more info. Congrats again and hope you enjoy the site and the bike.
