this is probably a REALLY stupid question but...
I've heard of people using 650a tires on 650b rims, especially on the (larger) Sun rims...Now, realizing that they're only slightly different, will they go the other way? As in: can I use a 650b Col de la Vie tire on my 26X1-3/8 Phillips 3 speed? It's got the original Endrick rims, and the 590 Bells I have on it now work OK, but I'd really like to try out the CdlV's without dropping the extra $10 per tire.
