Yesterday, I got a nice, older bike that I intend to use on longer rides (like 200k - 300k brevets). It has 27" wheels which have 1-1/4" tires on it. This is a nice set-up, but I'd prefer to carry a spare tire with me that doesn't stow awkwardly. I've checked a few places looking for this size in a folder, but have come up empty. Am I chasing a phantom that doesn't exist? Will I have to look for 700c rims if I want to be able to carry a folded spare?
Thanks in advance
