Hi!
I got a friend who´s fixing his old crescent road bike. It´s early eighties and the tire dimensions are 27 x 1 1/16.
I´ve tried finding tyres but don´t really see what this translates into todays dimensions.
It doesn´t seem to be be 700C?
Thanks in advance
Jan

Yes, it's 27", generally an English size. Look for a tyre that is ETRTO 630.

I have a pair of 27 x 1.25" tyres for sale.

700c are smaller.
