Tyres, speed - weight v rolling resistance
A new set of tyres has set me thinking.
What has the most noticeable effect on speed - rolling resistance or weight? I'm assuming it's rolling resistance, and that the weight only really effects initial acceleration and climbing. The new tyres although heavier are slightly narrower and more rounded and feel faster over the short distances I've used them so far.
Currently riding an MTB with a split personality - commuting, touring, riding for the sake of riding, on or off road :)
