I recently got a bargain on a Trek Verve 3 bike. From what I read, it should support my weight (6 feet tall, 290lbs and going down) if I get wider tires with strong sidewalls. Currently I have an AT 750 Rim with 700 x 32C tires and wonder what kind of tire I should get to ensure I will not get those flats on the road.
I will be using this bike for commuting on pavement only. No harsh riding or anything.
This bike also has the front suspension fork which I was told I could lock in to avoid it from going up and down all the time.
Any thoughts on the tires or advice at all? Thank you!
