    Just purchased my first good bike (Trek 4.5) and cannot believe how much more fun than my old Raleigh comfort bike. Took my first ride last Sunday 8 miles flat land and then 6 miles of steep uphill riding and survived.

In this case, its a 1992 trek 720 19" frame (actually measures 20") that is scratched and the paint is a little scabby...but it's a good frame, all in...

    So these Continental Diesel tires are just right for the kind of trails I ride, however I'm wondering if they're too wide for my bike. I ride a Trek 4300(2009). My normal tires are 26x1.75", these tires are 26x2.5". Is this too radical of a size difference? And just one other question :eek: do I...
