Tire and Rim sizing help needed
Hello Im putting together a sing speed bike and need some help locating tires that will properly fit. I have an old fram that would be fitted with a 700c wheels and gears. I want to put on some nice fat tires like these
Will standard 19mm road rims be able to accommodate these larger tires? I was thinking of running a diameter of 35+mm
Any thoughts are appreciated
