    Newbie tube question

    Hi all,


    My current tubes are marked on the tube as 700x28/38(27x1 1/4)

    I went today to buy some spare tubes and all the shop had where ones stamped on the box
    700 x 23 to 32C 23x32x622mm

    The fella in the shop said that they ones they had would be ok as replacements, is this correct?

    Cheers,

    toe

    They're really not the right size but should work fine assuming they have the correct type of valve. You'll be stretching the tubes from a 32 to a 38.
