    Have a look here http://www.sheldonbrown.com/tire_sizing.html
    Or here http://www.ctc.org.uk/DesktopDefault.aspx?TabID=3802

    Basically, the 36x622 is all you really need to know.

    Easy! That's a 700c x 36! ;-)

    Seriously, I agree whole-heartedly with what Rusky says, but it's hard to get people to use those standard ISO tyre sizes.
