    Motobecane Super Mirage FRANKENBIKE

    Meet FRANKENBIKE I didn't want to waste money on a build, so I threw it together with spare parts. It is now a single speed and the darned thing rides way better than it looks. Hey it's a snowmobike. 26" rear and 700c front wheel It's all I had to spare.

    Hi CC !
    - Ingenious dual purpose bike there! - A 26" for winter trail riding, and a 700c for the track. (Why the manufacturers haven't thought of this I just don't know.)

    actually, cannondale used to make mountain bikes with a 24in rear wheel and 26in front wheel. (and there is also the current crop of 69ers 26in rear/29in front)
