My 84 Motobecane Mirage Sport has little to no clearance everywhere. I noticed this before, but didn't think anything when I ordered new tires in same size as what is currently on the bike. (27 x 1 1/4).
Basically the Panaracer Pasela TG's I ordered rub the front derailuer, while the Specialized Tri-sports (basically slicks) in the same size have 2-3mm of clearance.
Talking to people it seems that if I return the Paselas for 27 X 1 1/8, it should resolve my issues, is this true?
