    Plus (I've been told) you want the better tire on the front because that's where you need traction. So generally, buy a pair, wear out the back, move front to back, new tire on the front.

    I used to think a robust WHIZZ was cool, and had a bit of freewheel-noise-envy. Then I had a wheel with a loud freewheel, and having to hear it all the time, it got real old, real fast (although, if...

    Beautiful. My dream bike, someday. Maybe even in Ti. What kind of spec did you go with? Trying to squint at the pictures, I'm seeing a double (compact?), wide cassette (11/12 - 32/34?) 105 shifters?...

    I don't use them because I don't commute on a bike with 26" wheels. Before I had a dedicated commuter, I used to swap them onto my hardtail sometimes, and I still keep 2 pair around to convert my...

    With fatter tires, you probably won't notice any difference in rolling resistance (for better or worse) as much as you will notice an increase in comfort from riding with lower pressure.
