Thanks for that, interesting articles on there.
Wider Front, Narrower Rear
A wider front tire makes sense in many applications, however, when handling and ride comfort are considered. A wider tire will generally provide better cornering traction than a narrower one, assuming appropriate inflation pressure.
A wider tire also provides superior shock absorbency. I personally prefer a slightly wider tire in front, since I suffer from some wrist discomfort on occasion.
I think I'll stick with the slightly wider one I have on the front then.
I've been cycling for many years but only started to take more of an interest in maintenance etc. of my bike now, which may have something to do with the town I've moved to and the terrible road conditions! ;-) so thanks for answering the newbie questions.
