I'd like to set up my Surly Ogre for commuting. It currently has 29" 29mm internal width rims, for bikepacking.
I'm thinking of getting a second wheelset for commuting, so it rides less like a tractor. I've been looking at 700c gravel bike wheels or 29" mountain bike wheels, with an internal width around 19mm...
What would be the differences/benefits of these options? They each seem suitable. It seems like I could get either with hub spacing to fit the bike (100m front, 135mm rear). Strength?
I'd probably get a tyre like the WTB Expanse (32mm).
