Does it look weird?

Hi all

Need some opinions here.I put a smaller wheel from another bike onto this bike to lower it and also make use of hydraulic disc brakes. The trade off is a smaller wheel. What you think are the pros and cons? Havent got a chance to ride it due to the weather. Anyone foresee any problems in riding and handling? the tires are wider at 2.5 " i hope it gives a smoother ride.

update

brought it for a test ride and was disappointed and the bike got a bit more quick in steering and one weird thing is that it seems to be slower than before. Would a freshly charged SLA be weak due to the slightly cool 38 F weather or the wider 2.5 width tire made it slower?
