26" wheels on a road frame?
Is there anyway to put 26" wheels on a road frame? I bring this up as I am following a thread on 650b wheel coversions onto a 700c old frame and it got me thinking if there was a way to experience a similar conversion without having to pony up to buying 650b wheels.
26" wheels are what 135 mm hubs? An old 700cc road bike is probably what 126mm? Could a steel frame split that difference?
I understand it would probably come down to brake pad reach -- if the frame had canti's could Vbrakes make it or if the frame didn't have cantis could a set of center pulls make it?
