Following up on my original wheel issues question, I went to see my local cycling store to tell them about my problem.
I want to change rims and would like to have them support tires from 23 to 28mm. My frame is a hybrid one, perhaps a bit on the MTB-side, so I originally have a 17mm wide rim (supporting 25-38mm tires).
I did not have a lot of time but the guy said there were no rims to fit my needs and that at best I would be able to comfortably run on were 25mm tires...
Was there some kind of misunderstanding between us or was he making a valid point?
