    want to put some road tires on my new guardian

    I just purchased a new guardian and wanted to occasionally run it on the road. What would be required to get a second set of tires that were more close to a commuter tire?

    Just some new tubes to fit the tires. I would use a 700x35c or so for road riding. That's a good size most hybrids run.

    Cool thanks, what if I wanted to have a whole other set of wheels that I can pop on when I want to ride the roads. Is this common? Do I have just have to get a set of wheels that fits the 3x9 gears and size?

    That is obviously the easiest and fastest way to switch the wheels. Remember you need a wheelset, disc rotors, 9 spd cassette, tires and tubes. This can be a pricey way to go but is a huge time saver if you swap around often.

    Have you tried putting 50-60 PSI in the tires it came with and riding them on the road?
