Big wheels on small bike using road tyres
I decided to see if the wheels off of my 29er would fit on my 26" hardtail using 23mm road wheels.
Super motard! the frame could accomodate a much bigger tyre but there is far less clearance on the forks, maybe 15mm from tyre to arch.
It was too late to try it on the road this evening but I'm looking forward to hitting the west coast highway on the 23mm wide 700c tyres at 90 & 110 psi.
