I've done some crazy things on my bikes- like running EA3 rims on a mesa runer frame, and other odd wheel size changes, but I haven't ever changed out a 27 inch road bike.
But now I'm pondering getting a set of new wheels for my KHS special. As some people know, it's nice touring frame, but kinda tight in clearances.With 27s running conti sports you have to be REALLY careful about getting fenders in there. Width isn't so much a problem, though.
So I'm pondering converting it, getting a bit more clearance and some spiffy touring wheels, but I don't know which way to go.
Right now it's on 27x1.25 contis, nice, but not where I want to go with the bike. It currently gets used mostly for day touring and sometimes overnights, but we may be doing a california coastal trip sometime, and I'd like to have it set up for multi week tours.
All sorts of crazy things happen, so i'm just going to post and ask for suggestions.
