I'm newish to cycling, so I apologize if this is a stupid question... Does it make sense to have two MTBs -- one for dry weather and another for wet/winter weather? I'm doing both paved and dirt trails.
I'd like for my current MTB (a 27.5x2.0 hardtail Specialized) to be used in dry weather since it already has slicks on it. Then I'd possibly like to have a second MTB with much wider tires (e.g., Trek Roscoe 7 @ 27.5x2.80) for the rainy/wintry weather. I don't want a fat bike per se, but something with wider tires so I get more traction, and likely studded tires for the winter.
I'm not riding everyday because I'm afraid of slipping in the rain, and I'm kinda lazy about swapping tires. I know it only takes like 5-10 mins to swap tires, but I don't even know if it's safe to be swapping them all the time (e.g., if it destroys the rubber over time). Also, having an extra set of wheels can be expensive considering my current MTB is only $450.
