I'm very new to the complex world of bicycles, so apologies ahead of time...
I have a 2012 Giant Defy 1 (https://www.giant-bicycles.com/us/defy-1-2012) and am looking to upgrade the wheels to something more commuter friendly. The tires on my road bike are stock 700 x 23 and the rims are stock Giant PR-2.
My questions are:
- What's the best size tires to use? I read that 32's are too wide, but my worry is that 26's might be too narrow.
- Will I need to get new rims to accommodate the larger tire or will the stock PR-2 discs, which currently use 23's, work?
