Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I ordered 30mm G-One Speed tires for the Light Bicycle 56mm wheelst, but I mounted them on the stock wheelset just to test them out https://road.cc/content/review/13807...-disc-wheelset

They went on easy, and the bead set with about 80psi from a track pump. The ride is smoooth, and not noticeably slower than the 25mm Michelin Pro4 Endurance tires I had been using.

^^^ FYI, I run those at 65/70psi (f/r) at 195lbs, so you might want to experiment with lower.

30mm?

I tried them at 60/65 yesterday, but I might drop it by 5psi when I test the inflation today. The tiny amount of tread seemed to kick up a little road gravel, but I'm sure that will go away after a few more miles.

Yup. I think that's the only size they come in for road bikes.

It may help when the new wheels show up in getting the tires mounted, suggestion is to keep these tires mounted on stock wheels and inflated for a couple days to get initial stretch over with.

I got the Asian width because I have wide feet. Plenty of toe box room.

I recently picked up a regular width in white (couldn't pass up for $50) and they took a while to stretch out but they are perfect now.

This morning, I bought a Pearl Izumi Elite convertible wind shell to replace a virtually new one that I lost on the General Van Fleet Trail in Florida back in February. I know it's a Bike Forums membership long shot, but to the person who found it on the trail, I want it back!

Asians have wide feet? Heck, that maybe why I have hell finding shoes that fit well.

bought my first road bike (although have seen it called gravel bike at various places so i'm confused).

bike is nothing fancy at all a btwin triban 100 from decathlon. for my current budget it was that or a refurbished vintage bike, my lack of knowledge and advice from a friend who bought from same guy about 2 years ago made me go for the triban. was essentially a case of warranty giving piece of mind and friend loved the vintage bike but said after awhile they kinda start falling apart due to abuse, and i know i tend to abuse my bikes just as much as he does.

also bought a seatpost mounted rear rack for the bike
