First off, the wheel size is simply 27" and the tire size is 27x1-1/4". The rim diameter is 8mm larger than a 700C rim. You will need new tires and probably different tubes with Presta valves. Your existing front brake caliper will work if the pads can be adjusted down by at least 4mm. Otherwise, you can use 700C wheels, provided the rear axle spacing matches your frame, which will be either 120mm or 126mm.
