Wheels 27 inch vs. 700c, is one really better?
So I have a 1980s Raleigh Technium that I am converting to single speed (fixed/freewheel hub), I can get either a 27 inch wheelset or a 700c wheelset from my LBS. One shop said that the 27 inch would be a inferior quality wheel, the other did not mention this to me at all. My question is this, is a 27 inferior to a 700c? Both will be new parts (rims, spokes, and hubs). I feel like the one LBS is just completely against 27s, and wants me to buy a 700c set from them and not a 27 from the other.
