## What is the difference between 700C and 622?

The standard modern road bike wheel has an ISO diameter of 622 mm and is referred to as 700c (makes sense, right? /s). While the diameter for both 29″ and 700c wheels is the same at 622mm, rims made for mountain bikes are generally wider to accommodate wider tires.

## What size is a 622 tire?

Tires with diameters 622 mm and 635 mm are both classified as 28 inch. Oddly enough, tires with an inner diameter of 630 mm are classified as 27 inch. These classifications originate from the time of tire brakes. In those days, the exact outer diameter of the tire was defined by the brake.

## IS 700C and 29 the same?

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. 700C (ISO size 622) is the most commonly used size for modern road bikes.

## Is 26 inch the same as 700c?

## Can you put any width tires on same rim?
