hi. just wondering if anyone's riding a pusuit-style fixie or single speed. by this i mean a frame made for a 700c rear wheel but a smaller (24 or 26 inch) front wheel. found a good deal for one in my area. would it handle ok? would it be terribly uncomfortable? i'd just use it as a city commuter, so long rides are not a concern and i've got no problems with a funny high-rise stem if necessary. opinions are appreciated. thanks! ross

... in my youth I put a 20" wheel from an old BMX bike on my 27" 10 speed after I destroyed my front wheel in a spectacular high-speed pavement endo.

My need to get around overrode any aesthetic/safety concerns.

I think a pursuit-style would be cool and very different, and isn't that what this is all about anyway?
