Would any other wheel sizes fit this bike?
Hey guys, I'm new here, and generally to the world of bike-awareness. I'm 15 years old and I'm pretty much growing out of this really great Giant mountain bike (with...2 inch wide tires
Anyways, I'm looking into buying a fixie/fixed gear bicycle although I'm sure that anyone with a knowledge of bikes can answer my question.
So, I found this fixie for a pretty good price of $200 (and a nice [original] paint job) on craigslist: http://newhaven.craigslist.org/bik/1893142786.html
However, the wheel size is 16" x 1 1/2", who Sheldon Brown on his website tells me is also known as 650B. I really want to get those wheels with 3 or 5 spokes, I think Aerospoke makes them (tell me who else does if you know as well). I would like to know what other sized wheels fit this bike in the classified. Would a 650C (the more 26" width...I think it's equivalent to 26" x 1"). Even better, would a 700c wheel fit this bike? I also want to get tires without any treads (completely slick), which I have not found for 16"x1.5" yet. So what other sized wheels would fit this bike? Thanks!
