Norco engineers design our bicycles with a specific wheel size in mind for optimum ride performance and character.
We do not recommend equipping your bike with wheels (front and/or rear) that differ in diameter from the original, OEM-specified size.
Modifying wheel size could affect clearances and result in risks to rider safety.
When a Norco bicycle is offered with two different wheel size options, the frame and suspension have been tailored to each wheel size in order to deliver ideal geometry and offer the best performance.
Essentially what this means you cannot install 27.5" wheels on your 29" bike, and throwing on a 26" wheel on the back of your 27.5" bike is also not a good idea. While we love a great mullet, our products are not designed with this in mind.
