635 mm / 28 x 1 1/2" tires

This is the size used on Old British (Dutch, Chinese, Indian...) roadsters.

Sometimes confused with northern European 622 mm tires, which sometimes include a "28 inch" designation.

This size is commonly found on "roadster" bicycles with "rod brakes" under such brand names as: Dunelt, Raleigh, Rudge, Humber, Phillips.

In the French sizing system, this size is called "700 B."

Note: The 28 x 1 1/2 F.13 designation is used in Canada for the 622 mm size.

Note: "Single tube" tires for the wooden rims of antique bikes are also commonly marked 28 x 1 1/2. See "Single Tube" in the Bicycle Glossary

We carry other parts for these old-style roadster bikes.

Note: Traditional tire size designations are confusing, and can lead to considerable trouble. For instance, a 26 x 1.75" tire will not fit a 26 x 1 3/4" rim!

This page mainly uses the modern I.S.O. sizing system, though it also lists the traditional national based systems.
