I think it's time to take off the stock tires that came on my 2021 Giant Revolt 2. It came with some Giant tires listed as 700 x 38 that measure out to 40mm wide.

Paint care for painted carbon fiber bike

New bike paint question

I may well be in the wrong forum, and for that I apologize. I just felt who would be better able to tell me what I'm seeing with the paint than framebuilders.

Trying to decide: Giant Defy Advanced 2 or Trek Domane AL5

I'm trying to decide between 2 new road bikes to buy. I've whittled a much longer list down to just these 2 based on availability, warranty, etc.
