Steve H said:How much of a pain is it swapping between the two?
I want to put the thinner, slicker tyres on to ride more on the road. Although I have a mate who likes to go off-road every other weekend. I'd probably want the knobblies on for this. Is it a real pain to regular switch tubes and tyres for these different types of riding?
I know the easy answer here is to buy a road bike as well and I probably will do this eventually, but at the moment the cash flow (and the wife!) won't allow it.
its not a pain i can swap mine with bare hands i know some find tyre levers easier but honestly its not a problem ive came across ,
use the same tubes for both tyres no probs ,
feels strange pumping them to 80psi nearly double that of knobblies but have faith its all good .
you can go down the spare wheels route but it can be expensive as you will need a rear cassette and discs if required simpler to just swap tyres imho .
