Boardman Hybrid, wider tyres needed.
My first post here, so hello...!
I have a Chris Boardman Hybrid Halfords | Boardman Hybrid Comp Bike 2014
But i find it a little uncomfortable to ride on the roads around where i live (Manchester, UK), the roads here are poorly maintained to put it mildly, i also used to enjoy cycling on canal tow paths (cobbled stone), but on this bike thats out of the question,
the current tyres are 700c x 28, what i would like to know is would it be possible to just swap the tyres for a wider set (say 700c x 38) and keep the wheels, sorry if thats a noob question
and would it make a great deal of difference !?
I realise the max width of the tyre is limited by the frame/forks, especially at the rear, it narrows quite sharply, theres approx 9-10mm between the tyre wall and frame.
