Default Re: Alternative Spoke Wrench

Just a thought on suspension forks- Most 26" forks will take a 700c wheel- maybe not if the tires really big- you have to use a caliper brake in the center hole- the cantilevers won't work-

and the calipers have to be fairly short- but not extremely so- usually the normal reach brake of the past 20 years or so. the one shock fork I have on my cruiser (1 inch threaded) even has a 27" wheel- which is bigger still- but 700's are easier to mount front and back on bikes built for 26"

I just picked up a dual suspension bike frame out of the trash Sunday that had a one inch suspension fork- selling new on e-bay for $28 shipped otherwise- AND it had a headset on there too..
