- anyone fitted 700c wheels to an mtb frame and did it work?
I am debating the same issue as I am thinking of turning my SS into a geared tourer/winter/adventure bike. I want to run full mudguards as well so not sure whether to stick to 26″. My question at the moment is fitting a full mudguard to a Pace RC30. Some sort of “P” clip should sort me for the drop out position fixing. Just wondering if I can come up with something better than cable ties. Plus if I went this route and kept to 26″ wheels and guards there is going to be a big gap between the fork crown and the mudguard.
Any thoughts people?Posted 6 years ago2unfit2rideSubscriber

I fitted a CX tyre to a big wheel and shoved it into a standard fork (Bomber) to give me a 67er. It worked fine and pissed off purists but then I noticed the amount of wear on the fork cross brace. not sure if it was the tyre or the crap being rubbed against it.Posted 6 years ago
