Trek 510 022 ishiwata 700x40 vrs 700x32
There is a huge difference in the way the bike rides. Without the clipless pedals it was almost impossible to slow her down with the fat tires. They just spin so heavy. But the ride is so smooth and fluid that it may be worth going back. I am running 700x32 on it right now and they feel so light and minimal. Accelerate much faster and easy to slow down. I bought a pair of 700x40 Kenda $6.95 each from Nashbar a few months back also. Both sets fit the frame and fork with no problem. The pictures above are with the Kenda Kross Plus 700x40's for $ 4.95 each.
Shipping was almost as much as a pair of the tires :^)
