Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Different Size Wheels

Ok,

I just put on my new 700c wheel. The valves I had only worked on one of the new wheels, damn deep v's....

My question is:

Can I run a 700c rear wheel and a 27inch front wheel at the same time? I just want to be able to ride it around tonight for a little bit and will get a new tube tomorrow.

If it fits in your fork, yeah sure. Alot of people ride 650c's on the front, so riding with diff size wheels isnt that big of a deal.

You could drill them out for Schrader valves. I don't like Prestas. They tend to stick when I least want them to.
