Well, given that I would like to fit a smaller wheel, that would place the rim even farther from any hypothetical hole in the fork/bridge than with a 28'' wheel. So it goes one way,not the other ;-)

Replace v-brakes by u-brakes on a frame designed for 28'' wheels.

Hi guys,

is it reasonable to exchange v-brakes for u-brakes in order to adapt a 26'' wheelset to a frame that was made for 28'' wheels? I would like to make a touring bike.

thanks.

I also wish that you had a camera... I think I'm going to do the same for my own... Does anybody know if it's okay to have a single speed in the back but keep the three cranks in the front ?
