Default Re: Im using a 26" front wheel and 20" back wheel any suggestions?

Originally it was this junk bike that I found and on rode, striped it and saved and refurbished the frame. Steel frames are strong so I dont know if putting a 20" wheel on the back would be much of a bad idea.

Here are some pictures of the Primed Frame. What do you think?
what color was the bike...thats a old GT crome moly frame....the GT i used on one of my builds was a hybrid triple butted crome moly frame....its going to take alot to break wasnt a tough build other than the back break...but strong and know vibration...good luck Dennis
