Just tyres or wheels too?

    Planning ahead for '08. I've got 2 events lined up that are going to be predominantly road/hard trail and not "proper" trail. I'm looking to use slicks, and will want to do some training on the road for it.

    SO, am I best off just buying slick tyres and changing them as and when, or should I buy a spare set of wheels too?

    Cheers

  2. Nah, just get tyres, a pair of 1/1.25s for the road and some proper dirt slicks. If you ride dirt slicks on road any distance you'll take the edges off. Swapping tyres on a regular basis is a good thing coz you'll get fast at it.
