Ok, most everything I've read here and elsewhere seems to indicate that this will be ok to do but I just need a little more confirmation that I'll be safe. The old Miyata I'm fixing up has straight wall rims instead of the modern hook bead rims. Will I be safe with a decent non-folding wire bead tire if it's only inflated to 70-80 psi?
And now my second question. These are 27" wheels we're talking about. I know that a lot of people riding on 27" really like the Panaracer Paselas. These certainly seem like good quality tires for the price. Any other favorites out there I should consider?
P.S. I'll be posting some pictures of my restoration of this bike over the coming months in my original thread titled "Miyata California Road." For those interested, keep your eyes peeled in this forum!
