Identify this rim and the tyre spec

Postby speedster356 » Fri Sep 29, 2017 10:30 am

Hi all, I have these wheels but I'm not sure the tyre spec for them. The outside of the bead dia is approx 640mm (bit hard to measure with the wheels built) Rim width is 30mm. A 27 x 1/4 fits but pops off the bead under a bit of pressure, a 700 tubular fits nicely but of course the width is too narrow. I don't even know if this is a tubular or a clincher rim, the other style of woods I have are clinchers with a 28 x 1 3/8 tyres. Any ideas?

You need to use another host for your photos. Photobucket wants you to pay.
I have moved to Flickr :)

You can get bigger sizes in tubulars that are used in cyclocross and (in the past at least) for racing across rough pave. Cyclocross tubs used to available upto 700x35c. Also, folk used to race 'The Hell of the North' on 28c and above tubulars.
Check the internet, I doubt you'll find any in Australia.

They look like clincher rims to me. Wood tubular rims don't have a well.
If 27" pops off, the next size down is 700c clincher.
I have never seen a 27 X 1 1/4 wood clincher rim, but have seen them or built them in 24 X 1 3/8, (wheelchair), 26x 1 3/8, 28 X 1 3/8, 28x 1 3/4 (same as 700c). Could you try a 700 X 35 clincher tyre on them?

I'm no expert on wooden rims... But that rim looks far too shallow for a clincher. The glue on it also suggests that it's had a tubular on it at some point.

looks like an older clincher rim but not one you can put a lot of pressure into

Thanks for all the help. 700 x 35 clincher won't go as it's too tight to get the second bead over. It should though shouldn't it if one bead goes over?

The 700 x 30 tubulars fit great.
