    Felt F70 w/ 700 cc?

    Hey all,

    Not sure if anyone out there can answer this one. Does anyone own a Felt F70 (2005) 47 cm? IT comes with 650cc and I was wondering if it's possible to put 700s on this bike?

    Here's the url: http://www.feltracing.com/05/2005_bikes/2005_f70.html

    Thanks!

    Generally the answer is no, but in some cases this can be done. If you look a the clearance between the tire and the fork crown (front) and brake bridge (rear) you will see that there usually is not enough room for the larger wheel. Plus, you often cannot make the brakes work. I don't have the numbers on your target bike to see if it will work in that frame size, and your best is to get in touch with Felt and ask them. If you have the bike in your possession, you can measure the gap and see if it will work.
