Hello, i finally got a chance to take the Trek-1000 for a test run at Spokes in Vienna Va and now see why i'm continually getting my doors.....mirrors blown off by other bikers in my weight classs, when riding my Trek-7300 hybrid!
I am seriously thinking about getting a road bike, to do some long distance runs on the WOD, but after reading a variety of road bike posts and reviews, i now see that i have alot of homework to do, ie buy
used and upgrade wheels & tires or fork out what's required for someone in my weight class of 230lbs.
So until i can figure out what to buy, i'd like to see if i can increase the peformance of my hybrid and read a post where someone recommended going to a skinnier tire and said if they had a 700 wheel, they
might be able to go to a 700x23!
So my question is, by going to a 700x23 tire from my current hybrid 700x35 tire, should that increase my overall speed performance and would would that also mean that i would be able to increase the
tire pressure from the current max of 90lbs into the 100+ range possibly?
