My bike I brought to Van to ride has 26 inch wheels. Despite this inherent wheel size disability it was still fun to ride my bike.

I just went out to the garage, grabbed my 26" wheeled, 135qr hubbed bike and rolled it around the garage and yes, it still rolls. I don't know how.

It's getting pretty hard to find a 1 1/8" steertube fork these days. I'm going to have to start stockpiling

So , am I going to have issues with clipping my heels on the chain stays? or does the BB shell/ BB spindle also get wider in this new "standard"?
