Thank you and a tire question.
To those of you who responded to my stem raiser question, thank you. I installed the Delta that was recommended and it is exactly what I was looking for.
Tire question...If I go from 700x35s to 700x37s, I know that the tire will be wider but is it also taller? Will the wider tire have a larger sidewall giving the tire a higher silhouette? My fender can accommodate 2 to 3 mm of additional width, but not much more than 2 or 3 mm of additional height to have adequate clearance. If it makes a difference, I'm looking at Continental Top Contact II's. I've had good luck with Continental and feel confident with them. I also know that Continentals tend to run narrow.
Any insight would be appreciated.
