    Will these rims fit ?

    I have a diamondback outlook and wanted to know if these wheels/tires are comparable:

    I want a more hybrid ride mid they will work awesome, if not I will just get a 26x1.5 like I originally planned.

    Those are 700C wheels and your Outlook is 26 or 522C. So the answer is no. Your best bet on a converted MTB is 26X1.5 road tires (Either slick, tread with a center ridge, or a very mild tread pattern.)

    Nope. Those won't work with your Diamondback Outlook.

    Your Diamondback Outlook has 26-inch mountain bike wheels.

    Those road bike wheels are bigger in diameter, probably will not fit into your bike's frame, and the brakes on your frame are not in the correct place for the bigger-diameter rims.

    I wish they'd fit. I'd love to see someone rollin' an Outlook with sewups!!!!

    Kinda surprised that there were Matrix tubular rims.

    Starting to think the CL poster is misusing "tubular" in his ad.
