I'm looking at riding again. I took a two year break after I crashed going down a hill when a tree branch was down and I went over my handlebars.
I've always assumed that thinner tires were better for riding but I was watching this video from Global Cyclist Network. In the video the rider makes a strong argument for wider tires.
What I'm wondering is there any literature or empirical studies that are public that show these results? I found some small things that corroborated this but I was sure this would be the right place to ask.
