    tires 700 x 34

    700 is equal to 27 " tires ?
    and 34 is the width ?
    I want to have cyclocross tires on my vintage road bike that has 27 x 1.1/4 rims.
    What is the size that it will fitt ?

    700 is slightly smaller than 27" tires and rims, but 700 tubes will fit 27" tubes and vice versa because of the strechability of the tubes.

    Bottom Line:
    700c tires will not fit 27" rims.
    27" tires will not fit 700c rims.

    27 X 1 3/8 I saw some 25 yrs ago, but you will have trouble finding them now. http://www.sheldonbrown.com/harris/tires/630.html

    You can still find 27" tires but most tend to be low end gumball road tires. I know Michelin, Continental and Specialized all still make decent 27"ers. Finding cyclocross/knobby type tires in 27" may be a problem though.

    these look pretty sweet, and are cheap:

    the tread sort of looks like over kill though.

    but then you could potentially run into your brakes not reaching far enough.

    wouldn't you just multiply 1.25 by 25.4 to get the mm equivelant?
