    Thanks. They will fit but I appreciate the reminder. It's a Novara Safari with the 2.00" on there now with a third of an inch on sides of chain stays and plenty of space for height.

    Hi Everyone,

    I used to have a 26" Mountain Bike with 26x2.35 Big Apples. It was fantastic.

    I currently have a Novara Safari with 700x50 (2.00") Big Apples on it. They are good, but don't seem...

    Get anything that is cheap. Preferably used. When you break a wheel beyond repair, use the money you would have used on a good bike on a good wheel or wheel set. Something like rhyolite's with Deore...

    An option is to get an 18 and 20 and try them out. With a 32c a 42x18 will give 62.9 gear inches and 42x20 is 56.7.

    I was going to suggest Wallingford as well due to the return policy.

    First though, is there anything stopping you just putting the Pro on the other bike and riding it? Try it out and see how...

    I would try to find a used set of 700c wheels and go with studded tires if you commute all Winter. If you are not worried about ice, the Continental Winter tires are good; though 700's as well.

    I like mine! But I would be sad if it were stolen.

    My thought is to look once you move. Ride the current bike until you find a local shop near where you'll live, then figure out which bike / brand...

    My guess is your bike was much more than the $380 range the OP was looking at. An expensive set of wheels will hold up well, but entry level will probably experience some issues with higher weight...

    If you just have to have a new bike, go for it. I would side with the folks to keep the one you have for now. My first thought was to upgrade the wheels to a sun rhynolite set like these for $150...
