700x 23 on the tires and on the tubes 700x23-25. Says NOTHIGN about MM on the tire or anywhere else. Listen, I need help. What is the right size for me? What does 700 C on the website mean?

700 X 23 = 16,100

That is the right tire size for you.

700 X 23 - 25 = 16,075.

Right tube for you.

You're welcome.

How of curiosity, when is 700x23 not enough information? I'm not being a sarcastic jerk. The post surprised me and it's an honest newb question. I've always bought my tires/tubes using the NxBleh spec.

The 23 on the tire is mm. The 23-25 on the tube is mm. 700 on the tire and tube means it's for the road bike size wheel, as opposed to a mountain bike which is a smaller wheel.

The tubes marked 23-25 are for your tire marked 700x23. Even a wider or narrower tube would work ok. Don't worry about it - just order those tubes.

700C is the wheel diameter. 23 is the width in mm. All tires have the size on them somewhere. Tubes can fit a range of tire sizes, as the tire lets the tube expand to fit.

23-25 is the recommended tire size in mm that the tube is recommended to go into.

700c is the diameter of the rim. 23 is the width in mm of the tire. The tube is sized to fit tires that are from 23 to 25 mm in width. The tube you indicated is the correct tube for the tire.

How many trolling threads are you going to start about this? The size is 700x23. That's it.

How many times are you going to ask this question? The last thread has been locked and you received the answer in that thread multiple times.

Tube size would be 700 - 23 to 25.
