## What does 700c 28 mean?

700x28c simply means the size of your bicycle tire, according to what’s known as the ‘French system’. “28” is the width of the tire, again in millimeters and “c” refers to the width code of the tire (like you’d see when you look at your bike either from behind or in front).

## 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 size is a 27 inch tire?

27-inch tires come in common widths of 1-1/8 inch, 1-1/4 inch, and 1-3/8 inch for some older hybrid and cycloross bikes. The BSD of 27-inch tires is 630mm. 27-inch and 700C tires are close enough in size that the inner tubes are compatible; i.e. you can use a 27-inch inner tube in a 700C tire, and vice-versa.

## What size is a 700C wheel in inches?

All road and cyclocross bikes are built with 700c wheels, which are 29 inches. However, 700c wheels are designed to accommodate a thinner tire. Many come in widths ranging from 18 to 23 millimeters, with touring tires ranging from 25 to 28 millimeters.

## Is 29 inch the same as 700c?

29″ (ISO size 622) is actually the same rim diameter as 700C, although most 29″ tires will not fit 700C road rims because they’re too wide. 29″ tires are popular with mountain bikers; search for 29″ MTB. 700C (ISO size 622) is the most commonly used size for modern road bikes.
