Since 26" wheel are really ~26.5 on average, you're looking at a 1.25" drop in BB height.happymeal said:I would think the wheel will be 1.5" shorter overall if measure from the hub and I was hoping it wouldn't effect other parts or the performance of the bike.
i cant put both my feet flat. and my bike fits me fine. unless you want a cruiser, comfort bike, something to ride to the store, etc, you probably have your seat too low. mountain bikes (and road bikes too) are sposed to have saddles high enough that you have to get off of them when you put both your feet on the ground. and even though you bike is hybridish, i suspect its supposed to be set up the same way.Yes I can reach both sides of the ground when seated.
i can't do that on any of my bikes, 26 or 29, and get proper leg extension from the saddle to the pedals. what makes you think the big is too tall for you?happymeal said:Its Specialized Crosstrail. Yes I can reach both sides of the ground when seated.
Your bike is fine. I don't understand why you are thinking it's tall.happymeal said:I mean I can reach the ground by the top of my toes when seating in the saddle.
Anyway I took some measurement today , the lowest point of the Bottom Bracket from the ground is about 304mm and on the website it says B-B Drop is 65mm. I have no idea what that means. The paddle at its lowest position from the ground is about 5".
I would really like to know will I have enough ground clearance to drop down wheels size to 26". Thanks
