Can't compare to the guys out there where their bikes seem to
have replaced their car, but I've been riding pretty often since
early last year. Maybe 100 miles a week, both road and trail miles.
To add to the two bikes I ride for rec, I retrieved my older mt. bike
from a friend's garage.
I'm only a measely 6.5 miles from work, but have been taking the
"kinda-scenic" route to extend my workout.
But I digress, back to my question...
(Yes Mikey, I'd like to know how narrow a tire I can get away with)
I'm not sure how wide my rims are, check that later. Just wanted
to be a little more efficient on the pavement, but not go full road
since I plan to span some rougher pavement. Replacing my rims
could be an option though. I do think I can lighten up the bike
1-3 lbs without breaking the bank. (Still deciding if I'll get rid of
the manitou shocks all together for a stiff front end)
Any suggestions are cool. Thx
