comment Can I put 700c tires on rims made for 27 x 1.25"?
That's what I was afraid of, thanks for the reply. I will just tell them to order me in some 27" schwalbe marathons then or similar tires in a slightly wider width.

I ride mostly roads, the odd time its hard packed gravel so I tend to keep my tires under inflated a little bit. I realize puncture resistant tires are not a cure and never get a flat. But it gives me more options tire/tread design. Bike is pure steel 12 speed bike is almost 30 yrs old and uses shrader valve tubes. Some bike paths here are that real fine stone shard stuff so would prefer to use different tire maybe also a tad wider, it has old school brakes and would allow the clearance width wise. I ask to use the same rims as I really dont want to have to replace the brake system aswell.

Yes sorry not had my coffee yet, 27x1.25. LBS just has almost no selection as its a out-dated size for the most part
