"how easy is it to chnage tyre types from thinner sleecker town tyres to larger mountain trail typres
Im looking at getting a town/trail bike, mainly to cycle on paved roads and some light to medium trails. but occasionaly i go on rougher ground and trails. can larger tyres be fitted on this model?"
answer 1
"Wider MTB type tyres cannot be fitted to this bike as it has 700c wheels that have a larger diameter. Only MTBs have sufficient clearance fot MTB tyres so your best option may be to buy an MTB such as the Carrera Vulcan and fit slicker road tyres. "
