The first number is the diameter of your wheel. Sizes such as 26, 24, 20, 27.5, 29 and 700c are common tire diameters. The second number (after the X) is the width of your tire. For example, a 26 x 1.75 size means the tire diameter is 26 inches and the tire width is 1.75 inches.

What are the disadvantages of tubeless tyres?
- More expensive.
- Fitting is messier and more time consuming.
- Removal often requires good grip strength.
- Air and sealant can escape (‘burping’) if the tyre bead comes away from the rim due to a sudden impact or extreme cornering force.
- Sealants that coagulate need topping up every six months.
Is tubeless worth going?
There will always be people who ardently defend tubes and say that tubeless is a gimmick or not worth it. But in most every instance of mountain and trail riding, tubeless is – by far – the lightest, most reliable and cost effective setup you can ride. Like any system, tubeless needs maintenance.

Is 26 inch the same as 700C?
A 26 inch, or a 650c wheel is about 1 inch smaller (about 2 inches smaller with road slicks) in diameter than a 700c. Some people think that because 700c wheels are the ‘standard’ for road bikes, they must be better.
What pressure should my bike tires be at?
Pump it up. Proper tire pressure lets your bike roll quickly, ride smoothly, and avoid flats. Narrow tires need more air pressure than wide ones: Road tires typically require 80 to 130 psi (pounds per square inch); mountain tires, 25 to 35 psi; and hybrid tires, 40 to 70 psi.
How long should bike tires last?
The conventional wisdom is that your road bike tires last anywhere from 1,000 to 3,000 miles. High-end (more expensive) tires should last at least 2,500 miles.
How often should bike tubes be replaced?
FWIW, Continental advises changing tubes and strips with each tire change, and in any event, at least every 3 years.
