I have a Nashbar Single Speed 29er, and I want to upgrade to an Alfine IGH. I have been shopping around for the best deal and have come across a couple of options and wanted to get some opinions of some more experienced people.
This a 32h hub and I would like to keep a 36h, but the hub/wheel combo is about the same price as the hub alone on amazon. I was wondering though how wide of a tire can reasonably be put on a "road" wheel, could I reinstall the 2.1" tire that came with the bike?
Dyads are reputable touring rim and are wider than most road rims (actually, around the width of many XC mountain rims. From Velocity's website:
"One of the most versatile rims in our lineup. The Dyad is a bit wider than most of our 700c rims (24mm wide) making it a great choice for loaded touring, commuting, a tandem, cruiser or even a 29’er."
