Volpe, Fenders & Tire size
Just got home with my new Volpe today. I was looking for a light touring bike and think I have found the perfect bike for what I was looking for. The shop where I bought the bike is great (Richardson Bike Mart). However, as seems to be the all too common case, the salesperson (kid) that I dealt with was pretty much a racer and didn't have a clue about light touring nor do I think he had ever really looked at a Volpe before today. Anyway, I had done my research and just needed to ride the bikes I was interested in to make my decision.
Anyway, I have a question and it is this
oes anyone know how big a tire I can go with when I add fenders? I have the 58 frame and it currently has the stock 32 tires. I do want to add fenders and may go up to 35 or even 38 tires? Can I do that? Thanks for any feedback!
