I bought a used Karate Monkey off CL the other day that came with a decent single speed tubeless wheelset with giant knobby tires. This is all fine and good for the trails, but I'd also like a sturdy disc wheelset for on-road use, as I plan to use this for commuting and bikepacking as well and would prefer to use tubes and a 9-speed cassette. I have a few questions:
-I'd like to run 35 mm slicks for everyday commuting...what's the max rim width I can safely go with?
-Can I lace a mountain disc hub (Deore, etc.) to a road rim to achieve the narrower rim width I need?
-Anyone have a setup (or know of one) they'd like to share? Trying to decide what my options are.
Thanks a lot guys!
