27 inch (ISO 630) Wheels from Harris Cyclery

The 630 mm/27 inch size was used on most sporty bikes in the U.S. up until the early 1980s, when it was gradually replaced by the slightly smaller 622 mm size also known as "700C. "

All wheels on this page are machine built by our supplier. Fully assembled (some pictures show components only).

The intended use is for casual daily riding under good road conditions.
