    will 700c tires fit on 27" rim? help!

    Has anyone here tried it? Aside from the stretching issue, what problems did you run into?

    What size tubes did you use?

    thanks!

    No, it won't. Tubes are interchangable for 27" and 700c.

    ^^^ like he said, NO. you can, however, in most cases change out the 27" rim with a 700c one, assuming your calipers reach down far enough.

    going from 27" to 700 also lowers your bb so if you are fixed think about that
