No the original size. New 600s run 70 side walls. Mine is the 60. My front is 120/60 as opposed to 120/70

from my understanding about gps it is only accurate to within 100 ft.+-

so figure that variable into the gearing math, along with the tire circumference, wind resistance, start/finish mark accuracy...

wind resistance has no impact on speed, only the acceleration to get there.
