Re: Does anyone have a Corsa with 26-inch (559mm ) wheels with disc-brakes setup?
So what is the Bottom Bracket height for the 650c recumbent?
The Bacchetta site is a remarkable location for these specifications. According to the site, BB height is 32".
I've already looked at the bacchetta recumbent models website. I'm looking to see if anyone have have modified the recumbent extensively from the stock. Such as using 26-inch ( 559mm ) wheels instead of the 650c wheels on the Corsa 650c model.
I apologize, I missed that nuance. So a 559 wheel is 12 mm smaller in diameter than a 650c (571) wheel. The radius then would be 6mm less which would result in lowering the bottom bracket from a 650c to 26" (559) with the same width tire by 6mm or about 1/4 inch. That is assuming both wheels are the same size. Changing tire sizes will affect this but mathematics work so adjusting for tire size should not be difficult.
