Is a 27 inch tire the same as 700C?
These are NOT the same as the 700C tires found on modern road bikes. 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. However, you can NOT use a 27-inch tire on a 700C wheel, and vice-versa.

Can I put 700c wheels on a 26 inch bike?
Since 700c has a larger diameter than 26-inch wheels, if you are planning to fit 700c on a 26-inch frame, you might need to replace the brakes. Although some cyclocross bikes use V-brakes, you may not find a brake that will fit into the 26-inch frame because the mounting points are usually in different places.
Will a 26 inch tube fit a 700c?
It’ ll work fine. It ‘could’ work if the 700c tube diameter is similar to the 26 inch. Some 700c are quite small, and some 26 are very large. Another concern is the size of the hole for the valve stem.
