    Another Question (Rim/Tires)

    So I have a trek 7.2 FX and was wondering what might be the slimmest tire I can put on my bike? I was talking to a guy at performance bicycle and he mentioned I wouldn't be able to go smaller than a 700 X 32. I was just looking for some other perspectives so anything would help.

    Wrong question.

    What's the best tire for you?

    I'm assuming you want faster.

    Just as an example, the Conti gatorskin 32c.

    Conti tires run small, so it's prob closer to 30c than 32c.

    Another nice tire is the Vittoria Randonneur.
    You can find the real size of a Vittoria by looking at the size
    that's embossed into the tire.
    We are as gods, we might as well get good at it.

    narrower does not equal faster.
