Now to all physicians of mountain biking.
Lately I've been riding a lot with slicks, b/c it's much more faster on paved surface. Although I do go on gravel pavement, but I can't go fast because I'm aware of losing traction on curves. Especially at the front. So I was thinking to install Kenda Karma DTC (xc), only at the front and leave slick on the back wheel.
Now here's what I would like to know. How will that affect the speed and the traction? I'm sure that will enhance the traction, but will it decrease the speed? Me, in the city, losing 3-5km/h because of the tire change is a torture
