    LHT new bike tire size question

    I just got a new LHT and am trying to set up my computer. The tires have these numbers on them. 37-622 then 28X1 3/8X 1 5/8. Is this similar to a 700 tire. I am new at this

    622 would be a 700x37mm road tire. It does get confusing.

    Actually measure the circumference for the most exact measurement. Sometimes the diameter is used instead.

    If I'm not mistaken, I think the 622-37 is actually a 700 X 35mm tire..... funny deal!

    Really depends on some brands.... But the reality is that a 622 is a 700 size tire.

    Bike computers used to have an option for finding the code number by rolling the front wheel a few revolutions, measuring the distance, averaging, and using the actual circumference. Can you still do that? Anyone?
