27 vs 700, how much difference?
I'm new here so I hope this is not a dumb or faq. I didn't find it by search except 7/22/04 hook rim discussion.
I have a road bike with 27" wheels. One rim is bent beyond fixing by LBS. I'd like to try wheelbuilding. Can I replace the 27 w a 700 rim, new spokes and my old hub? Shopping online I don't see any 27 rims. Any problem with brakes or frame fit? Thanks
