I'm new to participating in the Dirty Kanza, and I have signed up for the 100 mile length.
My question concerns tire size. Would a larger tire on a Monstercross bike provide an advantage? Would a 700x47 have a benefit over the lighter 700x40?
Keep in mind the smaller tire goes on a lighter bike that is normally faster, but I'm interested in the bigger-is-better concept on rugged gravel.
