Title: wheels and recent travelers
Post by: pptouring on March 21, 2012, 07:37:29 PM
Would like to hear from recent (past year or so) world travelers. Have you noticed an increase in availability of tires in the *-622 range during your travels? The reason I am asking to hear from recent travelers is because most comments found on blogs, forums, etc... that are anti-622 wheels are a couple years old or older. I have come across a couple of more recent comments that are pro-622 and say they're becoming more popular in the Asia region and can be found in South America. I know over the last couple years this size range has become very popular here in the US and are now being sold on bikes from the big box stores. Traveling and living in Europe I know it's easy to find this tire size too. Anyway... I'd really like to hear from actual travelers and/or from someone that can post up some recent stuff either pro or anti 622 that I may have missed.

thanks everyone

Hi pptouring, From what I heard, yes it is becoming more popular but by no mean it is widely available. Like in Asia and South America you may find some rim, tubes and tire in 28" (622) but that would only be in major cities, and only in some of the "richer" countries. So I would not count on it just yet, I am guessing that it will take another decade before 28" are more readily available in S. America and Asia.
