First post here So pls go easy on me...
Some time ago I spent quite a lot of time on my bike(s). But I had a few years' break. recently I decided to come back to bikinng though...
I have a Marin Bolinas Ridge (from 97/98 or so). Hard top say, anyways looks like this:
I am using it for city rides, to/from work rides and asphalt.
Recently I have disassembled and cleaned the bike and came to the conclusion that I need to replace the axles (they are quite beat by now).
SO I came to the conclusion that it might be worthwhile to put 27.5 wheels on the Marin, just to see what will happen...
Since I want to use skinny tires on it (right now I am using Maxxis Detonator 26x1.0), it seems to me they will fit.
What do you thnk? Shall I buy new 27.5 wheels? Or shall I stick to 26''?
How would this affect bike's geometry and behavior? I think should be fine for city and asphalt, no?
What cheap rims would you recommend? I do not want to spend loads on that really...
And one more question - what about v-brakes? ATM I have stock ones. Can I use them, or will I have to purches some longer brakes?
Many thanks for your help.
