Question

Answer

Can I use 700C tube on my 29er?

700C tyres on 29er rims works just fine; just beware of running narrow (25C and below) tyres on wide rims.

Can you put 700C tires on mountain bike?

You can put 700c tires on most mountain bikes without issues. Actually, the rim diameter 29-inch MTB wheels are identical to that of a 700c wheel. So as long as the width of the 700c tire isn’t smaller than the rim width, it will work perfectly on a mountain bike.

Can you put road Tyres on a 29er?

OP you can fit any road tire that is narrow enough – hence there’ a massive choice. You’re better off with a slickish 29er tyre, like a thunderburt or equivalent, in my experience. Depends on your rims. A ‘slick’ gravel/touring tyre would work.

Does inner tube width matter?

Using Narrower Or Wider Inner Tube Than The Tire That being said it is in your best interest to stay close to the size indicated on the tire. If the difference is too great it can lead to issues that could potentially lead to premature flats.

What is the difference between 650b and 700c?

The difference between 650b and 700c is the diameter of the rims. 650b wheels measure 584 mm in diameter. 700c wheels measure 622 mm in diameter. 650B wheels are 38mm (about 1.5”) smaller than 700c.

Can you put 700c wheels on a 650b bike?

But that wheel and tyre combination is so big that it means a 650b wouldn’t be compatible with that frame anymore – the handling would be thrown completely off – and that also means swapping in skinny 700c tyres, such as 28 or 32mm, would compromise the ride feel too.

Is a 29 inch wheel 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.

Can I put street tires on my mountain bike?

The short answer is yes, you can put road wheels on a mountain bike, but due to the very different design of a mountain bike when compared to a road bike, you also need to make some other adjustments and take the design of the bike into consideration to make this transition work out.

Can you put smooth tires on a mountain bike?

You will find many MTB bikers bringing along slick-tires on long trips for street training. You can mount the tires on a spare set of wheels or install them on the MTB rim. The recommended slick tire size should be 1.5-inches to fit the wheels. These days with the 29er size finding slick tires to work is not difficult.

Will a 28 TYRE fit a 29er?

28”/700C/29er The wheel sizes 28”, 700C and 29er or 29” all refer to the same rim size: ETRTO 622. The tyres can differ, but the 28”, 700C and 29er are all the exact same rim diameter.
