26" wheels on a Mark V Pro?
so my mark v pro is FINALLY COMING and i am very excited. however, my GF, who is kindly bringing it down for me
so i am thinking, keep the 700c wheelset and the nice 23mm tires it came with to use on the track, and get a smaller wheelset with fat tires to use on the slippery roads in my hometown. i am looking at the 650b size, but it seems a pain in the ass to get a hold of anything good in this size!
what would you all think of lacing some 26" tires to some IRO flipflop hubs and rolling with some 1.5 or 1.95 tires? the overall rolling diameter would not be very different from the 700x23 settup! this would be awesome since i could keep my track wheelset at the track and ride in on my fatties, take them and the brake off, and switch it up in no time!
would I run into any unforeseen trouble?
is it just blasphemous?
