I recently bought a new Wheeler hybrid that came with 700cX40 Kenda tires. This is my first bike with 700c wheels and the 40s seem really big at first glance (maybe that's only because I was riding a commuter bike with 26"X 1.25 smooth tires).
Does anyone here use such wide tires? Do you notice a slowness in handling or increased rolling resistance? I'm wondering if it's just a case of getting used to the new bike and larger rims.
