    A quick tube question...

    Are 700 and 700c tubes the same??? I need new tubes, and I was just making sure I got the right ones.

    Thanks

    The c stands for centimeters. So if you aren't seeing the c there, they probably just left it off cause they were lazy. I don't know of any other 700 sizes.

    Nope. The c stands for "c" as in a,b,c. It's a size designation like in shoes. A 700 centimeter wheel would be around 23 feet in diameter.

    Either tube marking is good for your 700 wheels. The most common mistake made in buying tubes is getting the correct valve - presta or schrader.

    Well I'll be.... thank you! You know it was one of those things that I've assumed for well, a long time.... but now that you point that out it makes much more sense. Makes the 650b seem much more logical too.
