Bicycle Tire Air Volume (Endomorph)

A comparison for five relatively common wheel sizes. The tyre volume was computed as the volume of a torus (donut) shape. V = 2*pi^2*R*r^2 = (2*pi*R)(pi*r^2).
So tyre volume increases linearly relative to wheel size and is proportional to the square of the tyre diameter. So for instance a 700c x 39mm tyre will have roughly the same air volume of a 650Bx40mm tyre. Also a 26x2.3" tyre will only have 91% the air volume of a 29er 2.3" tyre. One of these charts includes the 3.7" wide Surly Endomorph which you can see has almost 2.5 times the air volume of commonly available mountain bike tires.
