    P35 and smaller tires, (38-42c.)

    Has anyone run a combo similar to this? I have a late 50's Schwinn tandem with 650b wheels that needs new wheels. The P35 is most similar in dimension and looks to the original steel ones, and the Fatty Rumpkins would be a killer tire for it's intended use.

    Thoughts or photos? Thanks.

    I have used 26x1.5" road tires on 32mm rims with no issues.

    What brakes are on the tandem?

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    The front has an exquisite drum brake hub with huge flanges, the rear will be a coaster brake Nexus 7spd to replace the SS Bendix. I want to ride it, and gears are the way to make that happen.
