I hope this makes sense. I also tried searching for this but found nothing.
I have been running a converted road fixie for a while and just bought a 58cm track frame as an upgrade because I busted my old bike.
the tires on my old bike were both 90 (27 x 1 1/4). I was also recently given a velocity front rim running 700cx28 on them but have yet to use it.
up against each other the 700c rim is smaller than my old wheelsets i think but not by much. my question is, can i run the front rim with a 700c tyre and my back rim with a fixed hub and a 27 1 and 1/4 tyre. I understand how both rims are different sizes therefore needing different tyres but I need to know if this is practical. eventually down the line I will purchase a 700c rim for the back but for the meantime will this do ok?
the back tyre is much thicker than the front 700c I just need to know if this is a stupid idea. aesthetically i dont care what it looks like but would you recommend it?
If this is somehow an actual track question, its technically against the rules to ride two different wheel sizes on the track, but I would think in any local race that wouldnt be enforced for a 700c and a 27"
