Tube size and psi?
My LBS didn't have my size tubes in stock, which is 700x32c, so they convinced me to buy a 700x35c. I had no problem putting it in the tire, and I inflated it to the normal pressure, which is 75 max. But now the bike feels 'weird'. I can't really explain it other than a little sluggish and harder to pedal.
I'm wondering if the usual pressure in the different size tube could cause something like this? or just the fact that it's not the "right" size, or maybe i'm just tired?
