So, recently I purchased a mag trainer for my bike. I live in an apartment and it isn't terribly noisy but I wanted to reduce the noise further. I read about "trainer" tires you can get that are as smooth as a baby's bottom and reduce noise, so I bought one. Now that I'm installing it, I'm worried it might be too small for my rim.
The tire size is: 700x23c
The wheel size is: 700x28c/38c
The tube size is: 700x25c - 32c
Will this actually work? Would I need to get a smaller tube to make it work? I read on Sheldon Brown's site that using a narrow tire on a wide rim results in a greater chance of flats. Would that risk still exist when using it with a trainer rather than out on the road?
Any advice/help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
