  • Commuter tire sizes and rims.. Recommendations ploise.

    So i've been commuting on light road bikes for far too long and i baby them and their 800g carbon rims at all times. I like the feel and speed but i'm thinking i'd like to go a little wider and fatter with the intention of hitting kerbs and the odd bunny hop off any lips i can find.. I'm 100kg so no light weight.

    I'm picking up a pretty solid looking carbon bike soon for this purpose and wonder how thick is reasonable to avoid damage from impacts. 28mm and mavic cxp 22's? Or would i need to consider something chunkier like 35mm tires?

    Indecently i spotted a chap around town recently who seemed to be riding something like 40mm slicks on an otherwise ordinary looking road bike. He caught a decent bit of air intentionally off the lip of a kerb and didn't slow down one bit.appvalley tutuapp tweakbox
