- Road tyres on mountain bike 4 answers
I started commuting to work and was wondering if it's worth getting some slick road tyres for a 560 rockrider Btwin bike.
It has a 26x2 mitcheline cross trail tyre that came with the bike which is good for off road but it feels sluggish and slow as, pretty much 9/10 cyclist on road or single speed bikes beat me easily.
I tend to have to pedal harder and faster to keep up!
Do I need to purchase exact same dimensions as my current tyre or can I purchase any 26 tyre?
