Hi all, I'm hoping this is a relatively new, unaddressed topic. 3 advanced searches didn't reveal any useful information, so here goes:
I've got a pretty decent MTB that sees 90% road use. I've gotten into good enough shape to wrap the chain in the highest gear on some stretches of road/path.
are there offerings for higher gearing for 26" wheels that are closer to road gearing?
are there insurmountable difficulties in mounting a 700mm wheel on an ATB that has clearance for 26" + 2.2" tires?
i'm not at all familiar with road wheels and the related measurements, so if my ignorance is very obvious, i'd appreciate a gentle correction =p.
thanks, and i apologize if this has been address in another thread (please provide a link if possible).
