Does the tread on the tire effect the speed of the bike. I have a reason for asking when I broke the spokes I was running a sorta smooth thread. When I changed out the wheel it had a knobby mountain bike kind of tire so I didn't bother to change it. It seems to have cut my speed by about twenty percent. but i don't know if it is the tread or the wheel is less worn than the old one.
