Just curious. When I'm planning to ride my mtn bike on the road. (I commute to work on nice days) I usually swap out my tires to road slicks. Does anyone else? Even though it's a P.I.T.A. to do, the lower rolling resistance is significant. Now, if only I were a bit smoother, so jumping curbs and launching drive way aprons weren't so harsh using tires with 90 p.s.i.
I own and do ride (occasionally) a road bike, but I'm more comfortable commuting on my mtn bike. I guess it's the sense of security that if I have to bail off the road, I'm not gonna taco a wheel like I would w/the roadie. Plus, the route I take forces me to ride a few sections of sidewalk. This is dreadful with a road bike, and kinda fun w/the mtn bike.
Anyone else commute? Switch Tires? ....etc.
BTW, my Intense looks stupid funny with slicks mounted on my D321's!
