Just bought a 2012 GT Series 3 road bike and I'm a new biker so I don't know much. I'll be using it mostly for getting back and forth to town ( about 10 miles round trip ). Riding it is great in the sunny days, I'm just concerned about when it gets wetter and colder. I'm trying to find some mud guards that would aesthetically pleasing and functional but I'm also unsure about what sort of tires I can use. It seems some bikes can't always take knobby tires. Should I be worried about getting knobby tires in anything but snow to begin with?
