First off... I know this is a weird question and as much as I hope I dont get a whole heap of "why?" posts, I know there will be some. So if you dont know or think its a dumb question... by all means look away and leave me to my bizarre thoughts!
Anyway... I was looking at using a friends 26" Flash for a race I have coming up (I have a 29er Flash). I was having a look at the differences in the frames geometery and with the exception of chainstay length and head angle, the frames are very, very similar.
So my question is, does anyone know if the geometery (angles in particular) change if 26" wheels are used on the 29er frame? Where this is heading is obviously... rather than use someone elses bike... i might be able to get away with 26" wheels on my frame.
I'm going to give this a go anyway but was interested in any technicalities people either can pick up on or know from looking at this type of stuff.
