What do you think about this wheel replacement plan
Have a bike with 590mm (26 x 1 3/8) wheels and am going to build new wheels for it. I want it to use either 26" (559mm) or 700C and I think 700s are a bit too big. So I'm thinking about putting on some 26" rims in addition to some pretty fat rubber that will hopefully take care of the size difference.
Brake reach will not be an issue since both wheels will be drum brake.
Only problem is that I do not want tires so wide as to make the fenders ineffective.
