Stupid question, but until i see it myself perhaps someone can enlighten me...
Donated a Raliegh ladies bike to a friend, always assumed it had 27 inch wheels on.
She had a rear tyre replaced a while ago...and the shop fitted a 700 tyre on it :smile: Never thought about it at the time, now its bugging me.

Does that work ? or am i cracking up :smile:

If the shop fitted a 700C tyre, it's got a 700C wheel on it. You'd never be able to stretch a 700C to get it on 27 inch rims.
