Just wondering if anyone has tried using 650 wheels with cx tyres on a road bike. I have a cheap mtb but thinking of moving it on. So my giant contend disc bike might suffice for gentle off road rides with my son but I can’t see how I’d get suitable tyres to fit. Currently set up with 28mm continental gp5000tl. Would this work?
If you can squeeze 32's in there's Gravelking SK's available in this size which would be more than enough for gentle off road and means that you won't cut up you expensive GP5000's.
Like Joe said - the issue will be tyre clearance for wider tyres.
