Here's a 62 cm Surly Long Haul Trucker with 26" wheels.
Some people have griped about the aesthetics of big frames with small wheels, but who gives a damn when you have tire clearance like this!
That's a 2" tire. With a fender. With a lot of room left over. You'll get accustomed to the proportions after awhile, especially when you realize the built-in versatility of the astounding range of tires that will fit in this frame.
Speaking of tire clearance, we've had this stock 54 cm Cross-Check sitting around here forever. I suspect the "Beef Gravy" color is under-appreciated. Anyway, I just received some 700x45 Panaracer Fire Cross tires, and they fit this bike with room to spare. It's not a 29'er, but almost! Monster-cross anyone?
As I look forward to a Summer and Fall of trail riding, I guess I won't be too heartbroken if this bike doesn't sell. The taller tires make it just the right size for me...
