I'm just now starting to get into biking for the spring time, I have about a 12 mile one way commute to school, all paved on county back roads, somewhat hilly but not too bad.
I have an older mountain bike right now with larger knobier tires that I really think need to be reduced to make the ride a bit easier, especially when I start the ride in a few weeks completely out of shape. I read up on all the tire sizing guides and the conversion tables and the endless onslaught of ISO and old school sizing classifications and I am still a little confused. I have found the bike tire I think I want to go with and it is the 26 decimal size, the problem is, my old MTB has some pretty nasty wheels and they are getting to the point where the wobble is dangerous and I could use an upgrade.
I just don't know how to know what wheelset I need to get for the tire I want, I thought I would ask to see if anyone has any suggestions or knows what wheel size i'm going to need for the specific tire, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Tire: 26 x 1.0; psi 115125 , Specialized All Condition Elite
Tube: Need suggestions
Wheels: Need suggestions
Thanks for the help in advance!
