What size tubes do I need for my road bike?
Most of the best road bikes will have 700c wheels and need 700c tubes to fit. But, more recently there’s been a bigger influx of other bike wheel diameters now, with some of the best gravel bikes like the Specialized Crux coming with a choice of 650b or 700c wheels.
Will a 26 inch tube fit a 700c?
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.
Will a 27 inch tube fit a 700c tire?
27-inch and 700C tires are close enough in size that the inner tubes are compatible; i.e. you can use a 27-inch inner tube in a 700C tire, and vice-versa. However, you can NOT use a 27-inch tire on a 700C wheel, and vice-versa.

And 29-inch wheels are the same size as 700c, though they’re usually wider. Kids’ bikes will have smaller wheels, usually 16in, 20in or 24in, and need smaller diameter inner tubes and tyres, as will most folding bikes.
Will a 27.5 tube fit 700c?
However, tires that are close in bead diameter may use the same inner tube. For example, an inner tube for an ISO 630 tire (27-inch) will also fit an ISO 622 (700c) tire. The inner tube should also match the tire width, but, because inner tubes are elastic, one inner tube may fit a range of tire widths.
What size inner tube do I need for a 26 wheel?
The size is almost always written somewhere on the sidewall of the tyre. Inner tubes typically state a wheel diameter and width range for which they will work, e.g. 26 x 1.95-2.125″, indicating that the tube is intended to fit a 26 inch tyre with a width of between 1.95 inches and 2.125 inches.
What is the difference between 26 inch and 700c?
A 26 inch, or a 650c wheel is about 1 inch smaller (about 2 inches smaller with road slicks) in diameter than a 700c. On smaller bikes, that 2 inches is a big help in building the perfect size without sacrificing performance.

Checking the Inner Tube Size You Need
The best way to check what size inner tube you need is to look on the sidewall of your tyre. Tyre manufacturers print the size on the sidewalls, so look out for numbers such as ‘700x23c’ for a road bike, or ’26×1. 75′ which is for mountain bikes.
Will a 27.5 inner tube fit a 27 wheel?

Can I use 29er wheels on a road bike?
If you have a normal road bike with 700c rims, you could take the wheels off and slap some 29 x 2.1 tires on them, no problem. (Road bike rims are narrower, but the tires will still fit). Of course, you won’t be able to get the wheels back on the bike… So the short answer is, no, it can’t be done.
Is a 700c wheel the same as a 29er?
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.
Can I put 29er tires on 700c rims?
