any tube can be stretched to work in larger wheels. I have never seen or heard of anything larger than 700C besides the new 36" wheel. I would like to see that bike.

Well, there were lots of old bikes that used the British 28 x 1-1/2" tires/tubes, especially Raleighs, but I've also never heard of a 32" wheel/tire size. Pics.? What is the ISO marking on the tire sidewall?

700C is 622 mm bead-seat diameter.

27-inch is 630 mm bead-seat diameter.

28 x 1-1/2 is also referred to as 700B. (40-635).

There is also 28 x 1-3/8 called 700A (37-642).

So your probably measuring with a tape measure?

What's the ISO number? Usually in parenthesis (40-590) (625-22) (28-630) or something like that...what's most important is the 3 digit number as its the diameter, the 2 digit number is the width.

I like how that Walmart listing clarifies that their 32" bicycle tube "Does Not Contain a Battery"

Correct, but those are misnomers, imo. (Although the Europeans used 28" a lot for 700C, which I find annoying, but das ist life). Same goes for that '27.5' shyte (650B ATB stuff).

That may tell us something. Electric scooter or e-bike parts? The dang box reads 32" ....

the terms 700c and 650b are no more relevant, accurate or descriptive

[TABLE="class: SpecTable"]

[TD="class: DarkRowHead BodyS"]Shipping Weight (in pounds):

38.5


So, is it a 32-foot wheel?[/TD]

Yes, I've heard of these but don't know the details. They aso introduced a new, 27.5" ATB tire in the last year to provide a compromise between 26" and 29ers. It's based on the 650B bead seat diameter of 584mm. Some people are already rounding them up and refering to them as 28" or 28ers.

32 x 630 = 1-1/4" x 27" tires.

what measurements do 700c or 650b describe wise guy? the only accurate way to describe a tire size is by it's bead seat diameter. 622 or 584 or what have you. anything else you might call it is a mere name. don't be a jerk to me

I agree with you. The 700c, 700b, 650b... tire sizes are just arbitrary numeral designators assigned to a tire size. Sort of like US shoe sizes. Why does an 8 equal 10 inches, a 12 equal 11.31 inches and a 14 equal 12 inches? Of course European shoe sizes are just as messy.
