    Do Continental Travel Contacts run narrow?

    Does anyone know if the 700x42 Continental Travel Contact tire runs narrow? I used to have a 26" version and it ran narrow.

    Yes they do. I had the 622-42mm wire bead version and they were only 37.5mm wide. I read the same thing in a lot of amazon reviews and forums, too. I measured it on a rim with 19mm inner width.

    I would like to have a 47-622 version but its not offered.

    For the rest, it's a very good tire. I liked a lot and will go back to it, when my marathon racers are done.
