    New tires for an 1992 Cannondale M700

    I have a 1992 Cannondale M700 that I haven't ridden in at least 25 years. I want to start riding it again but before I do that I want to (need to) replace the tires and tubes.

    Question: Will the 26" tires sold today fit my older rims okay? Rims are Ritchey Vantage Comp.

    Thanks,
    Steve/NH

    Yes they will fit just fine. What kind of riding are you planning on doing with the bike?

    any 26" mtb tire should fit your rims. your frame and fork will limit how fat a tire width you can get on that bike. A bike of that vintage will likely work with a 26x2.1 tire but not much wider. if you're riding mostly on roads and smooth paths, a slick or file-tread tire will likely be lighter and quicker.

    Thanks for the replies, I didn't want to order them without checking first. My riding will be mostly on pavement and hard packed dirt roadways.

    It has 26x2.1 tires on it now, and I am looking at urban type tires to smooth things out a bit and that will also do okay on hard packed dirt.

    I take good care of my things, and even though the bike is 28 years old it looks new. New tires and brakes, a good cleaning and lube and I think I'll been good for a while.

    Sounds awesome! I personally like Panaracer Pasela 26x1.75 for more road and light gravel duties. Although I did just get some Panaracer Gravel King SK 26x2.1 which is a micro-knobby tire and Iíve been really enjoying the more confident feel off-road. Plenty of good options out there though!
