Heres the deal, I am a newer rider who has recently started getting more serious about biking. I just purchased a cyclocross bike (Specialized Crux) and love it. However as with everyone else here I am constantly thinking about what can make my ride better and/or faster. From what I read wheels and tires are the first major upgrade most people recommend. I was searching the web and found that I know next to nothing about wheels and tires. So here are the questions.
1. Are all 700c wheels disc brake compatible, if not how do you tell if they are?
2. How do you know what the min and max tire size a rim can take?
3. What should I be looking for when buying a new wheelset?
4. Difference and +/-'s of the different types of wheels(clinchers, areo's,tubeless?
Also anything else that comes to mind regarding tires and wheels feel free to share. Thanks in advance.
