    There are some threads here about trying to put on 650b wheels for a 26 inch mountain bike. Strikes me as a non-solution to a non-problem even if you can get it to work right. Changing parts is...

    Vintage mtbs are pretty inexpensive and easy to fix up for road riding. You can swap out the knobbies for slicks and swap out the straight bar for a butterfly or trekking bar which will give you some...

    I'd spring for the right length axle but you should be fine at 2.5 on each side:
