I'm looking to put on some aggressive tread on my new fixed gear stead, however, I'm running a 27" rim. Anyone know where i can pick up some 27" cyclocross tires?
Specialized used to make a tri-cross 27" but I havent seen them in years. I dont know of any current 27 inchers
Isn't 27" and 700c the same?
27 is slightly larger. So it looks the same until you try to mount a tire.
I'm pretty sure that the Tioga Bloodhound is an old cross tire.
I think that Vittoria may still make some 27" cross tires - they are green but hey you gotta do what you gotta do.
Your bike mechanic is wise beyond your wildest dreams.
If you can't be good at one sport then you can be okay at three.
IRC Cyclocross exists in 700 x 37 and 27" x 1 3/8". I got the 27" last Winter (i.e. Oct. 2001), and as far as I know, it still exists.
There is a tiny difference between both: the 700 has a narrow smooth line (not a ridge, just a 2-mm wide strip without knobs) whereas the 27" doesn't have any. If I remember correctly, the tire is about 38 mm wide x 38 mm deep.
Great tires in snow and decent on ice. Never tried in mud; we don't have that on Saint-Laurent Blvd.
