Hey guys, long time lurker here. I've been into bikes my whole life and switched to fixed gear about two years ago. I just recently switched the wheel to single speed and love it. So, I feel it is time for a new build. I'm basically looking to buy a bike complete for around $400 and then looking to buy some 700x40 tires for it. This leads me to my next question, will the Dawes SST AL fit 700x40 tires?
What other $400 wide tire friendly bikes are available? The ones I know of so far are:
Motobocane Fantom Cross Uno
Torker U District
Out of all of these choices I would take the SST AL by a long shot. I just want to make sure I'm not missing any other bikes in the $400 range, and also want to make sure the AL will take 700x40 tires (with both brakes) before pulling the trigger on it.
