I have a 48cm frame that I would like to use for my daughter's bike. Problem is the standover height is about and inch or so to high. Does anyone know if it is possible to put 650c wheels on the 700c frame? Long reach brakes a possibility?
My fault for not explaining myself fully. Both my children, ages 14 and 9, race road and track. As you can imagine, this has become quite expensive for me. My son recently outgrew his last bike "Jamis Xenith Comp". 48cm carbon fiber race bike and my daughter is about to outgrow her 24" trek KDR 1000 34.5 cm. I am hoping to avoid buying a 650c complete bike and put her rite into the 700c Jamis, but as I said in my original post the stand over height is a bit to high. Hence my question regarding wheel size. Drum brakes, disk brakes, and skidding are not options.
