    27" CX tires?

    Do such a thing exist? I'd like to put on something more agressive on the single speed road bike I'm building up. Hopefully it'll FIT whatever tires I find

    How funny I did a google search and ended up there. $20/each is a bit steep but I might try it.

    Will 27x1 3/8 fit any old 27" wheel?

    Well in context, yeah. I paid $6 for the bike! Of course I'm going to have to spend $35-45 on a rear wheel for it anyway, if I can't find a used one to toss on it.

    Yeah, its an old 10 speed, lugged steel frame, its the right size for me and it was cheap. Garage sale across the street. It was junk, really, and needs a fair amount of work. I'm turning it into a single speed road bike. Info here:

    If I can get the brakes around those 27x1 3/8" tires, then I'll be set for the nasty roads around this area. AND I'll be signlespeed finally.
