  • Pema,

    Unfortunately the Path model cannot be fitted with a 26" rear wheel without altering the frame. We currently do not have any alterations that extend the Path dropouts to fit a larger wheel.

    Also, a larger wheel would give you higher/harder gears, allowing you to go faster. The gears desirable for hills are lower and easier, so you aren't mashing your knees. A 26" rear wheel would give you higher gears and cut out the lower, hill climbing gears.
