I'm pretty sure I have a couple different 28's you can borrow to test.

My SOMA smoothie has fairly tight tolerances. It doesn't fit many 28's but it does fit one of my fav. all-around tires the Conti 4 Season GP which are more like a 27mm. I might have an old worn one of these to test.

Usually front fork crown distance is not a problem, but rear brake bridge and stays can be very tight. Also, the wider your rim, the smaller your OD becomes.

Anyhoo. I've got tester 28's if you want them.

28 inch. Sure?
This would be the same ISO as a standard 700C tire, but it is a rare way of stating it.

Or, perhaps you mean 28mm width?

Since it's a rainy day full of cancellations you could kill time reading Sheldon Brown's page

Sorry for the last minute addition. 93 miler to Frederick tomorrow.

Date/Time: Sunday March 5th 8AM meet-up
Start: Carroll Park. SE corner STARTMAP

Seems pretty obvious from the design sheet that anyone coming eastbound from Worthington to Greenspring ave is gonna roll through that circle at 50mph. Any cyclist attempting a left from Tufton to G'spring would be dead meat.

The best circle alignments are when all feeder roads point directly to the center of the circle like it's a T intersection. Then drivers slow down significantly, and bear right after careful inspection of the traffic.

This looks like a disaster. 

my 2¢

I'm bringing back the Wednesday night work-outs. We will be doing only hill climbs this year, all starting from Starbucks Roland Park at 7:30PM. The rides are 1 hour long.

We'll alternate between several different routes. The rides are hard, but not about speed. We re-group frequently.
Ask questions if you've got em.

As usual, great riding with you.
Glad you came.   -Bob

December Ramble ride happening tomorrow. 87 miles on and off of the B&A trail. The "off" parts are diversions to Sandy Point park, downtown Annapolis and Thomas Point park. Return is to the west of BWI. Two rest stops 30 miles apart. No lunch stop. Planning to be back in town by 2PM so we don't get snagged by the Ravens game. Come on out.

Details on the schedule and at the ramble blog.


50 miles of gravel in 75 miles of riding.

Start is in Hampstead. We head up into Adams and York counties.
Lunch in Glen Rock.

Details on sched. and:

Taking advantage of the rt40/Hatem bridge which is now available to cyclists, I decided to launch a big, big ride around the northern Chesapeake– not much climbing, but 175 miles of saddle time. I know, we're crazy.

Details are on the BBC schedule and

If you're interested in riding all or part of this, PLEASE contact me about it.
Best.     -Bob
