Finally got a bike.....tire question
I picked up my bike last night. The tires hold air(tire calls for 60-80psi, so I went with 70psi) and they don't seem to be in terrible shape, but there are some cracks in the sidewall. I figure I ought to get some new ones before I head out on my 13 mile round trip commute, and keep the old ones as spares.
My current tire size is 700x38. Should I get a smaller tire? If I am correct a smaller (narrower) tire my potential speed will increase?
My commute is all pavement....a couple of potholes but I can easily navigate around them. I want to make sure that whatever I get is bombproof and affordable.
Can anybody make any suggestions?
