I have probably what is a dumb question but I'll ask anyway.
If you have an almost new set of tires mounted on one set of rims, can they be moved to a different rim set with out any ill effects? They are of the folding type, 700x23.

Not a dumb question :) There will be no ill effects as long as you don't damage the tire while unmounting it. Use real tire levers to remove them, not something pointy like a screwdriver blade, and you should be fine.

I had put a set of rubino pro slicks on my one bike, thinking that I have mondo pro slicks on the other - this will be cool. I do not think that all slicks are created equal. I think the rubinos are much better, they ride wickedly fast and have a different profile compared to the mondos. ok wickedly fast? - they just seem to be a more crisp handling tire - maybe one that I am not ready for yet. Hence, pull them off and use them at a later date, possibly on the other bike and go with something a little less radical for now. The zaffiros (not pro) that were on the bike did seem a little squishy?, but I may just put those back on. I'm glad I got the rubino pro slicks at almost half off, especially if I'm thinking about putting them in the closet for a while!!
