What width of tyre can I fit?

Postby AllezAllezAllez » Sun Jan 19, 2014 10:01 am

I was looking at the Planet X XLS and noticed it has "Mach 1 820 Rims On Deore M525 29er Wheelset / 29er / Black"...if I wanted to use slick tyre's what is the smallest width I can use?

For a pure road ride could I use a standard 700 x 23c?

I'd go with 25's, but I ride them over 23's anyway because they are a lot more comfortable. There is an argument that they are faster too;
