putting smaller wheels on this specific bike...possible?
I'm trying to lower my schwinn Willy black 7 speed by 2 inches. Current specs are 700c wheels and i'd like to replace these with 26 inch ones. I'd be fully prepared to buy new rims, shorter cranks, parts, etc if necessary
To lower your bike by 2", you'll need to reduce the wheel diameter by 4" -- even converting to 26"/559mm rims and using the skinniest tires available won't do that unless you were using big 700C tires before.
So, let's hear why you need/want to do this.
