Default Re: How fast are we realy going?

Thinner tires are great if you're on mostly pavement- 1.75 width make a world of difference compared to 2.25- you can feel it in the pedal too, and they're much lighter

Theres even some Michelin 1.4 widths and such out there- not quite as rugged- 1.75 still seems to generally have as much height and rubber thickness as cruiser tires- they roll faster and with less vibration- not so "classic looking" I guess
