A side thread from this one: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=389036

I saw the same frame on ebay and the seller claims it would take 27.5in wheels. It's a 1995 Trek 7000 zx - the mountain bike not the hybrid.

How do I find out? (without purchasing the rims first)

Well it's got no disc mount so how would you brake even if it does?

I suppose I answered my own question in a way... I'd stick with 26in but fit a larger tyre such as 26x2.4

The 27.5 rim would be in the wrong place for the rim brakes.
