Tyre width question

Postby Jazwolfe » Thu Apr 18, 2013 8:21 am

I am struggling with a bit of clearance on my rear wheel on my tt bike. I was thinking on getting some 20C tyres, normally use 23C. What are the down sides or upsides to the thinner tyre, will i even notice the difference.

I run a 19 on the front of mine... Less frontal area... I have no issues with handling. I've run 20's on my road bike when someone offered them as freebies... Thought about going to them permanently as they were so good!. Lol
