700 D GT Bicycle Tires from Harris Cyclery
(ISO/E.T.R.T.O. 587 mm)

divider

This is the unique size used on some older GT bikes. In a classic Dumb Move, GT introduced a completely un-necessary new "in between" tire size. The current owners of GT have chosen to ignore the needs of those who bought GT bikes, and these tires are no longer available.

If you are unfortunate enough to be stuck with one of these bikes, you do have a serious problem. We carried tires in this size as long as we coud get them, but the supply has been exhausted.

This size is halfway between two fairly uncommon sizes, and you might be able to make do with a slightly wrong size tire.

Most of the bikes made for this orphaned size used cantilever brakes, so the possibility of making the bikes useful by replacing the wheels is even limited. The two sizes listed above will usually work with the original brakes, but these are both semi-obscure sizes, and rims are harder to find than tires. We do have some rims that could work.

The 584 mm/650B size seems to be undergoing a bit of a revival, so if you decide to replace the rims or wheels, this would likely be the best option.

I wish I could be more hopeful on this subject, but I'm afraid you have been left in the lurch by GT.
