Hi Dave. Sorry, I did not notice your message until today. I'm not that techno savvy.

Thank you kindly for the offer but the tyres on my bike are 25 mm. Because I use it for recreation and commute, the cycle shop advised me to go a bit wider to deal with uneven road surfaces. Seems to work.

Thanks for your advice and input to the thread.

regards Rob (Simpson)
