I have a Mongoose Maurice which has a wheel size of 700x18c/23c. I tried putting on a 28c schwalbe marathon plus tyre on it (which fitted on, but doesn't look ok). My tire fitting ordeal is prompting this question.
I already have a separate thread about my MM bike.
What is the max & min size that my wheel can take? on the rim, it says 700x18c/25c? Was it a good idea to put a 28c tire on?
I have the 28c on front tire and it is bulging out from the rim (I mean, the tire beads are completely inside the rim but the tire is bulging out compared to the 25c I had earlier)
I have a Mongoose Maurice 2010 (black which I was intending to use for commuting to office occasionally (20 odd miles 1 way). However the first day itself the back tire went flat half way
I am riding on city roads in Manchester, which are not very smooth. I am sure I have not bumped in any pot holes (as I was riding with moderate care). The tires on the bike are Continental Thunderbird 25c (one that comes with it).
