I have a 98 Cannondale rigid mtn bike that I enjoy riding. It fits me well and I put many miles on it commuting to work while living in Louisville KY. My commute at that time was 3.8miles one way and I rode about 4 days a week. I put street tires on the stock mtn rims and it did okay.
Well now I have moved to MI and my commute has increased substantially. I am thinking about driving half then biking half (around 12miles one way). Because of this I would like to decrease rolling resistance and set up my bike to run 700c road tires.
I know that Mavic makes a conversion rim but does it work? Has anyone used it with success? Does anyone else make anything I could use? I cannot swap over to discs due to the age of the bike and I have v-brake currently. Any suggestions; I tried search to no avail.
