Schwalbe tire sizing listings vs reality discrepancy
Okay, I've got almost all the stuff I need for my touring bike but am stuck on tire selection.
Rivendell's website shows the Schwalbe Marathon XR 42-622 tire as having an actual width of 37.677mm at its widest point. 37.677mm is just a bit too wide for my bike. I was looking at the 37-622 and wondering if the tire sizing would also be around 5mm narrower than listed when it's on my bike because if so, that'll be a good fit for my bike frame. Anyone have these tires that can help me out?
I am so stoked about getting this thing built.
