It has 29 inch wheels and they are not fat tires, more of a hybrid tire width.... The frame rails look skinny enough diameter and shape for a direct 'plug and play' installation. I imagine this frame will be a bit top heavy as well. What do you think, safe? Walmart has one now I can get for 50 bucks that is damaged.
my latest build is with that exact frame, Ditched the 700c size wheels and put 26" wheels on it and a set of 26" forks.
you can get some better tires that size, 700x40mm will put more rubber on the road for it and make it ride a little better.
that bike is called a fixie
ill post a pic of mine when I can get on my computer so you can see what I've done with it so far.
the brakes aren't that good on these bikes but if you'll get a set of the salmon colored cool stop pads it will make them better.
easy bike to motorize
