Hi, I currently have 28mm tires on my AlexRims DC19's which are reportedly 16mm wide.
From what I understand this is well within the recommended widths for my rims.
However, I recently found someone who is selling tires on the cheap (very cheap).
But all of the tires are 23mm (and continentals which I hear run small).
I really would like to be able to use such thin tires and especially at this price.
But would I be risking anything by going slightly smaller than what Sheldon says is acceptable?
What exactly are the repercussions of riding a too-narrow tire?
I don't punish my bike and my streets are very smooth. Would I be ok using the 23s?
Edit: browsing a bit more, I found this site that says I should be totally fine with 23s so there seems to be some play.
I still want to hear your input though.
