Hi all,

I've got an old Nishiki Linear funny bike - anyone got any experience with swapping the 24" front
fork/wheel with 650c on one of these TT bikes? Will this mess up the geometry too much? Thanks for
any input!

My guess: Probably. It will raise the front end of your bike couple of inches which will push the
seat back about an inch and a half. Since these bikes are already quite laid back for a TT bike, it
seems this is the wrong way to go.
