## What is the wheel size for 700c?

**29″** / 700c (ISO 622 mm)

The standard modern road bike wheel has an ISO diameter of 622 mm and is referred to as 700c (makes sense, right? /s).

## Is a 29 inch wheel the same as 700c?

**29″ (ISO size 622) is actually the same rim diameter as 700C**, although most 29″ tires will not fit 700C road rims because they’re too wide. 29″ tires are popular with mountain bikers; search for 29″ MTB.

## Is a 27.5 inch wheel the same as 700c?

The simple answer is that 700c equals 27.5 inches but, unfortunately, it’s not as simple as that. Buy a 27.5 inch tire and inner tube for your bike and they’ll likely not fit. But don’t worry, I’ve got your back. I’ve got recommendations below for tires and tubes to fit all types of 700c wheels.

The term “700c” is **the tire size according to the French system**. The “700” is stating the diameter of the bicycle tire and “c” is the width size of the tire. However it’s not 700 millimeters it’s 633 millimeters. Also, another common mistake is that often riders confuse “c” with centimeters.

## Can I put a 700c tire on a 27.5 rim?

What Is The Difference Between a 26 Inch and a 700c Wheel? This brings us around back to the same answer; **they are the same diameter**, but a 26-inch tire will fit onto a 700c rim but not the other way around because of the difference in rim thickness.

## Are all 700c wheels the same size?

In fact, 28″, 700C and 29″ wheels all refer to the same rim size. These different sizes are used as marketing terms. 700 and 700A wheels are uncommon now, but 700B wheels have an ISO of 635mm and are still used worldwide by several gravel and other off-road inclined bikes.
