i posted this in the recumbent section too, just incase.
anyways, i know a couple of you guys ride funny bikes with a 700c rear and a 24" front wheel, and i was wondering if anyone knows of any place online to buy rims/wheel/tires/tubes. mainly right now i am interested in a new rim. thanks for the help, matt
...so how did that work out anyway, man?
did you end up with a big gap between the frame and front wheel? or suffer some overlap?
was that frame made to ride with a 650 in the front?
I tried the 700 on my bike, and it looked and felt wrong.
Ended up ditching that fork and going back to the 24".
It's good. It's less aggressive (the geometry), but still twitchy and explosive enough to warrant riding that low. The seat and headtube angles were VERY steep to begin with, so the slackening of them is still very acceptable for me. I forget the headtube angle, but seat tube is about 77 degrees. I haven't bothered to find a 24" wheel to see what it was before.
If I wanted a dual-700C bike, I wouldn't bother having a pursuit frame. That's specifically the idea behind a pursuit frame, no?
