Just bought a used road bike rather cheap here in shanghai. it has a 28c back and 32c front.
one of the tires have a small hole and is exposing a little of the inner tube when inflated but the tread is still good. Is there a way to save it? both tires have tiny cracks. I would hate to throw the tires away although they are old because I just bought it.
I would like larger tires.what is the largest width i can fit? speed is not an issue.In fact this was an impulse buy. was looking for a normal commuter and it seems to good to pass. I intend to change the handles to something more upright.
Should I change tires and buy new tubes and tires bearing in mind that this would cost over half the price of the bike or should I change the wheel set to 26 mtb type rims and run 26 x 1.5 tires as I already have them quite a bit.
