Question about hills and wet weather
I have a 2012 Fuji Roubaix 2.0, part of my commute to work involves a hill with a 10% grade for roughly a mile. I've limited my commuting by bike to dry weather only so far but this year want to expand that to commute during wet weather as well. Any advice considering the hill descent when wet/raining? I typically brake hard periodically to control speed but still give the brakes time to cool off, I don't have disc brakes, how will the wet weather typically affect normal style brakes? Should I consider a slightly wider tire than the stock size (23c) for more traction? The rest of my commute is on a MUP that ends right at the entrance to my work and I'm not concerned with the rest of the trip, just that one hill.
