Hybridization of a Mountain Bike
Don't flame me too hard, but I have a quick tire question. I did do a search, and found all kinds of threads, but nothing specific.
My wife has an old Roadmaster Mt Fury (I think). She doesn't want a new bike at this point, so I want to make the one she has as comfortable as possible. The first step, of course, is tires. She has 24x1.95 knobbies right now, but I want to throw a pair of 24x1.75 slicks at it. Is it possible to use a narrower tire on stock wheels?
I will post pics when I get it done for her. After tires, I'm going to throw a new seat and handlebars at it and see how she likes it. She's shown interest in comfort hybrids and classically styled fixies, but I can't convince her to spend the money... yet.
