I've been seriously considering selling my 28mm tires for my Cross Check and switching to something wider. My reservations are coming from the fact that I run wide tires on my other bikes already. I tell myself that I need skinny tires on a road bike... and if I want to ride gravel, I should make a different bike choice. But when I encounter this on those skinny tires, I can't help but wish I'd make the jump.
I don't need skinny tires on a road bike. I can still be fast. I'm just slow to leave them so hastily. But I'm finding that I really love this gravel crunching type riding.
