Hi from South Carolina

Hey folks, my names Jon; I ride non stop on my Premium bmx and GT mountain bike. I have decided to try a fixed gear road bike. The reason I registered was to ask a question about wheel sizes. I have a Nishiki Citi Sport that I want to build into a fixed; my problem is the wheels. The bike has Araya 26x1.5 on it and I would like to replace them with a wheel set that has more road tire options. I tried the 700c off of my Specialized but they are about 1/2" too tall to fit in the fork or frame. Any suggestions on what size to look for?


Thanks in advanced and I am glad to be here.
