    I am thinking about selling my Monty 221 xlite mod and getting a long mod like a koxx or echo. If there are any other long mods let me know please. I am 6'3" with shoes on, and somewhere around 160-170 pounds i think. Would the difference in wheelbase between the 1033 wheelbase of the echo and the 1035 on the koxx make a difference at all?

    it wouldn't make a difference. if you got the koxx and tilted your handlebars backwards BARELY then it'd be the same thing as an echo. whatever brand floats your boat really, they're practically the exact same. be prepared for a HUGE difference either way though

    I have to agree with Graham. I know its not advice you asked for, but if you don't mind switching you should check out a stock.

    Bill, I agree with you. I have been planning on getting a stock always, but I wanted to try out the whole mod thing before I get a stock and stick to it forever.

    I should have got a long mod to begin with in order to try out mod trials, right? Since I am soo tall, long mod is the only way to go ive heard.


    but anyways, after I am done with riding mod for a little while, I am going to get an echo pure 1080 and stick with stock.
