Im trying to set up my new bike computer. But the instruction booklet and tire size settings are in inches? My tires are 700x35c. What does 700x35c mean?

I haven't seen a computer yet that doesn't have a way to switch to a 700c size?

Actually the tubes just fit in a 27x1 3/8... as I recall a 700c is about 28"

I just found my instruction booklet for a cat eye astrale 8. they suggest for 700x35c to use 2168mm, which is:

2 168 millimeters = 7.11286089 feet

Also I just found out google converts stuff!
