Hey thanks, fair points all around, no argument. I do have 3 folding 32mm Continentals in my parts stash that I'd earmarked for this bike,as soon as the stock tires wear out.
And I'd already considered the wisdom of riding these wheels as far as theyll go, but I'm also thinking, with ever-increasing inflation, and supply chain issues, and my history of busting generic spokes, it might be more practical to go ahead get something more sturdy, before that inevitably gets more costly and difficult..
Anyway, I'm still playing it by ear. Thanks again for the reply.
