For some inexplicable reason the frame was built to take 28 inch wheels. 700c wheels were 40 mm too small. These are 27 inch and I had to lower the mount for the Delta caliper brakes about 20mm to get the brake pad to reach the rim. I have no idea were to buy 28 inch racing tires that will fit the chainstay gap on a road frame.
