    26" wheels on a Kona Ute/Minute

    anyone have pics and/or experience of either a ute/minute with 26" wheels? wondering if it'll make a meaningful difference as far as lowering the center of gravity.
    Civilization ends at the waterline. Beyond that, we all enter the food chain, and not always right at the top.

    I put 26x3" wheels on mine, but that's hardly "standard 26er"

    A nice 26x2.5" tire is pretty close to the stock wheels' overall diameter.
    My setup gave awesome float and if the bb was actually lower I didn't notice.
    While you're at it get a travel-adjust fork and make it a real offroad cargobike!

    If steel is real then aluminium is supercallafragiliniun!
