    26 " on back of Paragon

    Has any Paragon riders tried a 26 " wheel/tire on the back to increase acceleration ? At least this is the theory. Please tell me what you think.

    It'll screw up the geometry of the bike, drop the BB about an inch, and probably ride really bad. I'd stick with the wheel size the the frame was designed around.

    Thanks kdiddy. I see what you mean. I feel the geometry of the Paragon is one of its best attributes. I'll just have to mash harder to get her started.
