SO.... both tires on my bike got stabbed somehow.. w/e
I needed new tires anyway.
The old tire size was 27x1 1/8
Ive looked on the rim/wheel.. and it says 27x 1 1/4 .. is that saying I can go upt to a 1 1/4th sized tire?
Also need some inner tube, probably want to guy 4 right now, just in case for later..(2 to use now, 2 spares)
Im a bit lost with the sizes that are in metric, mostly because i havent seen a good conversion charts..
I dont fully get it.. The metric part isnt what gets me, just switching over for sizes..
any suggestions for tires?
Ive looked at Continental Gatorskins in a store, not sure if I like them.. they seems slick, since it felt like foam rather then rubber.
Also, this is mainly for like a commuting bike, I dont need full on race tires.. something with a fairly good tread.
Id prefer to keep it a Schrader Valve, my wheels are sized for that (though im sure you could just fit a Presta through).
And i dont know if we have a pump that fits Presta valves
