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)

Yep they'll fit. The bead seat diameter is 622.

Always refer to Sheldon on matters of tire sizes

Yeah, 28 is the outside diameter. I'm rolling on 28x 5/8s which is equivalent (according to the tire info) to 700 x 35. Fat, man.
