Monty wheel on 20" Schwinn

I built my Monty on a 24" Schwinn (mostly because that is what I had). Has
anyone put a Monty wheel on a 20" Schwinn frame. By my measurements it should
just fit inside the fork; the height of the fork being the limiting factor.

Based on my past experience with cramming a 26" wheel into a 24" Schwinn frame,
I caution you to beware of clearances. Due to its design, the Schwinn frame has
a fair degree of flex in it, especially when doing extreme stuff like Trials.
I’d say make sure your height clearance is at least equal to your side
clearance. This should be measured at an angle perpindicular to the slanted part
of the frame.

Any tighter than that, and you’re probably looking at a lot of unwanted
braking action.

It fits okay heaght wise, but the fork is pretty close to the tire. -dan —
