Tyre size, what does say 2.2 relate to? Is it inches?
2.2 somethings- it’s clear from observation that it can’t possibly be inches. In fact, it’s got to be something variable, perhaps based on a roll of the dice, or the ever fluctuating girth of Andy Cairns.
Otherwise, how can a 2.35 and 2.5 Swampthing be almost exactly the same size, and a 2.4 Advantage be bigger than a 2.35 Highroller (or, a 2.5 highroller actually measure 2.35, while a 2.7 highroller measures 2.5)?
I hear Alan Turing’s last great cryptoanalytic work was to calculate the relationship between bike tyre claimed sizes and reality, but Continental had him killed with a poisoned Mountain King. (or, some say, just a non-poisoned OEM spec Mountain King, and a slightly damp corner)Posted 4 years agoPJM1974Member
I can’t believe the confusion, honestly you’re all simpletons.
2.2 inches = 763 Glimbarts. 1023 Glimbarts = 4096 Nanoteks. 4.786 Nanoteks = 1000 Glimbarts, except on Tuesdays, Fridays or any day when there’s a Liberal in the Cabinet when 1 Nanotek = 1.0196876 inches. But only if the tyre was moulded on a Wednesday, with a specific humidity above 32%.
I’m amazed that you all struggle with this.Posted 4 years ago
