I have some 26 inch road wheels from an old Huffy that is too small for me. I havee been thinking about the 26 inch, skinny road wheels on a 1x5, 27 inch road bike with drop bars.

The black bike has the 26" wheels on it I like it better than the original wheels. The 27" will that was originally on the front is what I'm going to put on my French bike which is going to be a single speed.

I don't see how the blue bike is weird.
Agreed, other than that it is a little tall. Looking at the seat stay bridge, the tires look like the correct size
When I first saw it live, with comparsion to my Gravel (28" wheels, 21" frame) the wheels looked kinda too small for the frame size (they both were the same height). Definitely would look better with 28" wheels.
