Buying tires(4 posts)

Buying tiresFlat Man

Flatted my rear tire. Going to buy a new one, but want a 23mm. If I want to convert to 23mm (from 20mm), can I replace one tire first? Which should I put on the rear, the new 23mm or the old 20mm?

Help!

Put the old 20 on the rear and the new 23 on the front.

1. Better cornering grip
2. less vibration to your hands
3. front flats cause really nasty crashes
Exactly.....better tire on frontTrekRider
