    Does anybody 27x1-1/2" clinchers anymore?

    All that I see are x1-1/4, x1-1/8 and x1. I had gotten a peugeot with 1-1/2's and LOVED the soft ride at rec. pressure. I'm wanting to commute with my tourer through the winter but our DOT leaves giant chunks of ice hidden in the slush and I fear I'll still be getting soggy feet if I get MW-81 shoes for my fender'd FG 700c armadillo commuter unless I rubber-cement the tops of some knee-high rubber work/huntng boots on to the shimano "boots" (high-top reeboks look taller) or pinches on the tourer (not fun to work on in the snow).

    I`ve never heard of bigger 27s than 1-1/4, but I bet those would be some real car crushers! Your best bet for fiding a source is probably to post the same question the Bicycle Mechanics or Classic and Vintage subforums on BFnet. If all else fails, you can probably convert to 700c, but I suppose you already know that. Good luck, and I hope you dig some up!

    E-mail Andy at yellowjersey.org. He has a sub specialty of 27" tires. If they still exist, he will be able to get them if he doesn't stock them.

    I have some Michelin World Tour in 27x1 1/4. They are pretty large. I read they work out to 33mm's wide for most people, I don't have calipers, but with a measuring tape they look to be about 1 3/8" wide. Also they come in gumwall color.

    27x1 1/4 is generally a 630 rim with a 32mm tire. I did see one reference for a 27x 1 1/2 tire that was a 609 40mm. I've never heard of that before.

    I think a good 1 1/4 is as good as you're going to get.
