I'm a complete newbie when it comes to cycling. I recently purchased a Crossrip LTD and I have loved it!
In addition to doing some gravel riding a light trail stuff, I have also been taking it on longer road trips (30+ miles) and I think I could benefit from a road wheelset.
Here are the wheels that came standard:
Formula DC91 alloy front hub; Formula DC38 alloy rear hub w/Bontrager Nebula Disc 32-hole rims
Bontrager H5 Hard-Case Ultimate, 700x32c
So my specific questions are:
1. Would a road wheelset be helpful for me for longer road rides?
2. Current bike has disc brakes (Tektro HYRD cable/hydro brake) - I'm assuming this will affect my choice of wheels?
3. Does anyone have any specific recommendations of exactly what I should get? I'm not trying to spend a fortune (if possible )
