To anyone who knows the answer to this I'm sure it is very obvious and I've searched but can't figure out how to manipulate the search to find the answer. Really just looking for a yes or no- I'm looking at putting Club Roost 27 x 1 3/8 tires on my Bianchi Piaggio commuter/joy rider which has 27 x 1 1/4 wheels. It seems like a 700 x 28 vs 700 x 32 situation but I wanted to check with you all. Since it's dealing with 27", I thought I'd ask here.
I would really rather swap axles to a set of 700c's that are much lighter and would vastly increase my tire choices. Or, put a different threaded axle through my 700 set so I don't have to take apart my 27's just in case, or as a backup set. OR, ideally would like to get the right size quick release to work, if there is such a thing. I don't really want to do any grinding to get the quick release to fit. I know a 700 is a little bit smaller, found that out when I tried forcing a wire bead 700 on my 27" wheel... It looks like there is about 1/2" at most to drop the pads down the caliper arms.
