    wheel / tyre size?

    I'm looking for a bike but specifically one that will fit winter tyres.
    Winter tyres seem to be sold in units of 700x35mm etc.
    Most bikes I find have 26" wheels.

    What's the difference?
    eg 26" Wheels, Alloy Rims with Fat 2.3" Tires

    26" x 2.3 winter tires (I'm guessing you want studded)

    The difference is 700c tires are for CX or 29er applications.
