Who is this "everybody" and WTF do they know, anyway?
Do it. Go on, go on, go on...

Seriously? :roll:

Maths: don't mes with it.
Tolerances can be out even on tires & rims that are SUPPOSED to work together.

Don't try to ride it - Things will get messy and dangerous.

Is trolling normal for St. Helens?

Try it. Conti tyres are bloody tight on everything anyway, I wouldn't be surprised if a set of those fitted. And if not, well, you've had fun winding up the people with big internet voices.

They don't fit.

Now i know and you know that they don't fit.

Oh and about St.Helens, thats my general area. I don't actually live in st.helens town but the borough.

Anyone wanna swap a 27" rigida alloy for a 700c wheel? lol


Now we know they really do not fit.

Worth a try.

he hee, a joke rather than taking the pizz.
As the wise sages say, nothing to do with theory really, just a question of different dimensions.
I can't see why you wasted any time trying to get a good fit from the 27incher. Sure there may be some uber tight 27inch tyres that are struggle to get onto the 27inch rim, but would you trust this on cornering, and that's said with a small internet voice.
:lol:

The tyre wouldn't even stay on the rim, so cornering would be tricky!:) lol
