My front wheel is REALLY badly of true, so I took it to Sports Authority for it to be replaced under warranty. I'd have them true it, except I did and the spoke tension is so uneven. The reason it's so badly out of true? I hit a pole back in October. I trued it and have been riding on it (approximately 250mi), but it has just been getting worse and worse. To have it true, one of the spokes needs to be completely loose, which as far as I know is detrimental to having a solid wheel.
So I went to Sports Authority and they needed to retain the wheel so that they could replace it. It'll be about 2 weeks before they can have a new one in for me. I've been riding on my trainer and I need a front wheel to hold up the front end of the bike, so I grabbed the 27" front off of my dad's old Motobecane road bike. I knew that all modern front wheels are spaced at 110mm, so whatever wheel I used would be fine. I installed the wheel on my (700c) bike and it fit the dropouts and the brake pad spacing from my 700c wheel. If the weather clears up, can I ride on the 27" front and 700c rear wheel?
