Saw this bum bike a few Summers ago: old 10 speed with fully rotated bars, the 27 inch wheels had been replaced with a 26" set of mountain bike wheels with full knobbies. This created a brake reach problem that was ingeniously solved by removing the pads so the bare aluminum calipers could clamp down on the rubber sidewalls of the tires. Seemed to stop ok at the low speeds the guy rode.
