I just ordered a Gravity Zilla from Bikes Direct. I was decided on a cross bike as I figured it could easily serve the purpose of a number of bikes over it's lifespan. It comes with 700x40 Kenda Happy Mediums, which seem a bit overkill for the road. I'll be using the bike for errands, zipping to the coffee shop on Sunday mornings, and casual ~30mile back road cruises with my wife. It will see some hard packed dirt trails and fire roads from time to time, but not likely on a regular basis. Another thing to note is that we have a lot of broken glass, industrial debris, and pebbles in the road here, and that with BMX roots - I tend to be kinda hard on bikes.
Anyway, lemme know what you guys think I should be lookin' for. Width, features, recommended models, etc. I'm still pretty new to road bikes in general.
I noticed after ordering it that it rides on 26.5mm wide WTB All Mountain Speed Discs. Is that going to limit my tire selection?
