  • Hello dode927,

    I think you may get more of a response if you posted your thread in the Commuting or MTB forums.
    Where would you be if you fell down a hole?.. Stuck down a hole... in the fog... Stuck down a hole, in the fog, at night... WITH AN OWL!
  • New wheels; a good upgrade would be something like shimano deore hubs on mavic xm317, or mavic crossmax. But that will cost you £100 plus. Tyres; City jets are still quite chunky, you could put something like conti gatorskins or sport contacts on it.

    +1; saw the title and thought it referred to a big kiss = accident.
    Other than wheels, the best change is gearing, but usually easier to just get another bike = N+1...
