9-5 Ruins Lives
Yeah 47mm is a great sized tire, = 1.85 inches which is what a skinny mtb race tire used to be. On my gravel bike (which is technically a drop bar 29'er) I have 2.25" or about 57mm which is perfect for me. A bit much for extended pavement rides, but I no longer notice it. Especially considering I ride my mtb with 2.5s to the trail head on pavement a bunch.Hey thanks so much for the reply that's very helpful.
The Surly is probably what I will go for but I need to save up so it won't be for a year or so. The Salsa is an interesting option I will look into it.
Good point regarding the massive tyres thing. Being from a road background anything above 28s is big for me. 47mm will be just perfect.
