OK, I am converting an old road bike and I'm deciding whether or not I should get the 27" wheelset from this place
Or get the 700c wheelset from bicycle wheels.
I am having a hard time deciding because I already have a pair of decent tires on the bike right now (Continental Ultras) which are 27" and I'd hate to have to buy new tires and tubes on top of new rims (not to mention a new brake to reach the smaller rim). But I also know that 700c is the standard nowadays for road/fixed gear bicycles and maybe I should upgrade with the idea of getting a more modern frame to slap these components on.
I'm also curious at how 700c wheels look on a bike made for 27" rims. Is it noticeably smaller?
Thanks for your help.
