I just got a new Gunnar Crosshairs (which is sweet, btw) but one thing I did not realize. The mechanic at the LBS told me there is no easy way to switch wheelsets because the bike has cantilever brakes (Shimano). So even though there are quiick releases, he says I cannot easily pull off the CX wheels and swap them for wheels with road tires (I plan to use this as a CX bike and also as a backup road bike/winter trainer).
He says the best thing to do is deflate the tires when you switch, because then you can pull the wheels off. This is not so bad but I wonder if there is a better way....
I have not had a chance to look at them, and I am also mechanically un-gifted.
Does this topic ring any bells? Thanks.
