Not going up in size. I've had a 26mm tire on my iro and though it was great, when I moved back down to my 23mm's on my beater bike i liked the speed and agility and didn't want to go back..
Yeah, **** the gatorskins and getting them back on and I can see the sidewalls starting to unthread. I've sat in my kitchen with levers sweating trying to get them on after changing the tube. I also have deep v rims and want a simple regular rim to fit the ulock onto the frame and front tire (the size of the rim just limits me to lock both). I am not rich, so something that is light and durable would be greatly appreciated.
about the tires, still kind of lost. Best puncture resistant 23mm fast, grippy, piece of rubber ..
