    27 1 1/4 tires on Ukai 1 1/8 rims? Can it be done? A few other simple questions too

    Hey all, need to replace the near 30 year old tires on my fuji and I've been looking at the Panaracer Pasela Tour Guards. I was wondering if I could fit 27 1 1/4 tires instead of the 1 1/8 to get a little more shock absorbency and handle rough roads a little better.
    I've heard it's done no problem, but I've also heard they won't fit on some rims... Thoughts?

    And two more little questions:
    Does anyone know the BCD of Sugino GT cranks?
    Where the heck do you buy Simple Green?!

    Any supermarket should have simple green.

    27" tires are generally interchangeable. You should have no problem putting 27 x 1 1/4" tires in place of 27 x 1 1/8".

    I'm 95% sure Sugino GT cranks are 110mm BCD. Refer to Sheldon Brown to check: http://www.sheldonbrown.com/gloss_bo-z.html

    I get Simple Green in gallon jugs from Home Depot.
