Re: [rootsradicals] Getting a bike
- Hi ShielaThe 26" thing people talk about is the wheel size. Most mountain bikes have 26" wheels, while most road and hybrid bikes have 700c wheels, which are bigger.

I just joined the group and am looking for some practical information.
So, to start at the beginning: My bike was stolen last month and I
am currently searching for a replacement. My options are limited due
to money constraints, but I am looking in the classifieds and am also
condidering building a bike with the yellow bike project here in
austin. What I need to know is specifications to make sure that the
bike I get can take an xtracycle trailer kit.
Anyone out there have any ideas or information I could use. I am not
a bike mechanic or even close, so any information you give me would be
helpful -starting with: What is the 26" I keep hearing about refering
to? Isn't a 26" bike kind of tall for most people?
