Hey guys Im going to apologize in advance if im repeating what has already been asked in the past, but with the search function + google im having a hard time finding out some info. Yes im a noob lol.
I just got into cycling recently mostly for exercise and personally believe its therapeutic. My work location is constantly changing so I occasionally commute.
I have a Trek 7500 Multi Track FX and I would like to continue to ride in the winter. I was thinking about buying a cheapo 700c wheel set for some winter tires.
Now for the questions!
1. Do thicker 700c rims exist?
2. Im not sure what 700x28c etc and 700x38c etc. Can someone give me simple layman's terms?
2. Is it easy to put the gear on the rear rim hard?
3. Upon doing research I came across a thread where someone mentioned that sealed hubs are needed for winter?
I would use my stock rims but they have so little spokes and are quite skinny. Was looking for something I didnt have to worry about so much during winter. I would rather put new tires on my existing bike since I am familiar with her and shes solid. I would assume buying a cheap mountain bike is another alternative but I am a poor college student lol Thanks for the help!
