In case anyone needed the diameters, I measured a new Bridgestone G704 at 24 1/2" and a new Metzler ME880 at 26". Both at 41 psi. The 'Stone is rated for 827 lb at 41 psi. Made in Japan. Tread: 2 Aramid +4 nylon, sidewall: 3 nylon. The Metzler is rated for 908 lb at 42 psi. Made in Germany. Tread: 1 steel + 3 ply rayon, sidewall: 3 ply rayon.

The seat heigth should increase by about 3/4" by using the 70 series in this case.

If it ever quits raining I will do my own 'seat of the pants' comparison.
