    seems like at NACCC's last weekend every third fixie i saw had a little front wheel. not many racers with them but tons of spectators. lots of them were the cool carbon spoked wheels too.

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    this is confusing but, are people putting them on 700c forks or are they getting 650c forks and putting them on 700c frames.

    if so, post some pics.

    26" mtb rims are 12mm smaller than 650c rims, but 26" is also used by tufo and others to refer to their 650c road tyres.

    [and wait until you get to the joys of 700c/27"/28"/29"]

    seriously. sod all of this.

    When retaining the original 700c fork you can do bar spins as sloppy states.

    Also there are a lot of older tri/aero spoke wheels out there in 650c due to their popularity among triathletes.... so that may explain why there are a lot being snapped up cheap.

    650c wheel + 650 fork + no brakes= fun.

    I also recently switched to a 650 fork and front wheel. but it was already discussed in my aerospoke thread. With pics and all that jazz. But I did just repain my wheels and am working on repainting the frame. here is a pic of the sweet gold wheel now.


    I originally wanted to make the fork/frame white. I though it would look cool with the gold wheels. But It may just look silly with my black cranks and stuff. Ill post pics when its finished.

    Its a 650c, It just doesnt have a tire on it, and it behind the wheel in the foreground. Why would I "true" it?
