My Sun frame arrived today so I now have measurements and was hoping I could get some help on whether to fit 700c or 27" wheels,the measurements are
Rear dropout to brake bridge =360mm
Between rear dropout=127mm
Front fork dropout to top of fork=350mm
Between front dropouts =95mm
As its my first proper build just wanted some advice on wheel size,if Ive got it right I seem to think I could use either but please tell me if Im wrong,thanks
Measurements of an SLX close clearance frame.
Drop out to bridge - 360mm
Fork to crown - 360mm
Compared to yours something just doesn't add up....
I measured from where the axle of my wheel sits to the centre of the brake bolt. Mine uses 39mm - 49mm brakes.
If you did the same then I'm thinking that it can't be 27" rims that you need, I would not be able to get 27" wheels in my frame and I doubt that yours is built with the same clearances as mine! Also your fork end to brake is 10mm less at 350mm if thats the case then you won't even get a 700c in.
I'm wondering if your bike was built with 26" wheels. Especially being so small. Would be good if someone else could add their frame measurements, especially if they've got a 27" wheeled bike (or a 26").
