Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Pretty unlikely; why not go with a 23c instead? Many more manufacturer and price options. Terry offers a 650x28, but it seems like manufacurers would determine full width runs of 650s to be cost prohibitive.

I'm building an old crappy 650c nishiki tri frame into a beater for NYC. I was planning on lacing 26" mtb rims to some formulas and using narrow MTB tires for better cornering and a little bit cushier ride, but I stumbled upon a 650c wheelset so I'm looking for a little bit wider tire for said wheelset. If it doesnt exist, I'll ride on 23c's without hesitation. Thanks dudes.
