Hi, like many people, I'm currently in the middle of converting my old road bike into a fixed gear. I was told by my friends at the bike shop that my frame is built for 27'' 1/4 wheels. However, I was also told that I could fit on 700Cs BUT, in that case, I wouldn't be able to put on back brakes. I know that lot of people will say to go with the 700C route, but I actually want to keep my back brakes.

Does anyone have experience with putting 700Cs on a 27 1/4 frame? And if so, were you able to put brakes on?

-Thanks, Andy
