I'm really only familiar with tires 20"- 26" on BMX/Muscle bikes & 27" on Vintage road bikes.
I've just recently taken an interest in road bikes, since all my bikes were tanks.
It's about time I got a "Big Boys bike".
Can I use a 27" tubes with a 700C tire?
I'm into older bikes(69,77,80,84) & have stock piled old parts for my old bikes.
I want to get into newer rims, & sourced a pair locally.
Just got a track frame & will use 700c rims & tires.
If I could use this tube this would save me a trip to the LBS, & I'll ride with the new rims since I always carry my tools.
Sorry if this question has been asked to death before.
I did do a search but most post or banter about how 700c tires will not fit, I already know that much.
I've been told 700c tubes will work with my older 27" rims, so I'm wondering if this work the other way around?
Love this site!!!
It's helped me substantially with getting to know about bikes other than BMX.
Who would have thought an old "BMX'r dog" could learn new tricks.
