What the title says.
For this, if it matters.
Is this sized.
Probably not going to find.
Tyres made in Czechoslovakia.
Is that even a place anymore?
Reading Bicycle Kitchen have sorted me out with odd sized things in the past, give them a try? https://www.readingbicyclekitchen.org/
Now, I should have thought of that. Was there today buying a bike.
I wish I was more organised.
Will pop over next Thursday if nothing else crops up meanwhile.
I might have a 26x wheel but can't remember if it's still in the garage
The 26x 1 1/4 is 597mm ISO as that was the british sports bike size, check the tyre as it'll be on there I had a raleigh Olympus a few years back and sold if for peanuts to someone on here and that was running 26s.
I'll have a rummage in the garage tomoz when it's light as there's no leccy in there.
not close to you but if it's there and actually useable I'd do it for postage
Lovely, cheers man.
Oh, yes, will also check that tyre size (it rings a bell but the wheels are in the shed at the bottom of a very dark garden. So will also need to check tomorrow:)
Well, had a look and the only thing I found was three ISO 590 tyres, sorry for getting your hopes up!
Lol, but thanks for checking. Going to the Reading Bicycle Kitchen on Saturday, they sounded hopeful.
I've got an old set of steel rimmed 26" wheels that fit those specs, with tyres and tubes. In London.
Ah, kind offer. Could I hold until the weekend and see if there are any locally?
I 've come across this thread by pure chance and I expect you've sorted this out by now, but I can't resist pointing out (again) that almost all 26" wheel frames will take 700's, and these will improve the bike, apart from being more plentiful.
As for steel rims - they are undesirable at any time but especially in the rain.
Actually, that is really helpful and will make my life much, much easier for this (seldom to be used) build. And as I have 700c sets in abundance I’ll grab a set and check that out at the weekend.
Oops, apologies, very rude of me to overlook your offer. I will pass for now however.
Yes 700c will fit- but bear in mind - in my experience at least- you won’t be able to fit the traditional size 32mm size tyres (1 1/4 inch) and still have room for mudguards.
Maximum tyre size probably 28mm with space for guards - possibly less depending on frame.
Ah good as I have a set of 23’s hanging up in the shed so we should be all good. Apart from having no traction, no mudguards, no (or little) puncture protection lol
