  1. A shy person asked:

    > Will newer 700c tubular's fit on older (1970's) 27" tubular wheels?

    Yes and no.

    Yes it will fit.

    No because there's actually no sucha thing as a '27" tubular'--that's
    some sloppy terminology that used to be current. All normal tubulars
    are the same size, rim diameter is the same as 700c clincher.
