This has me wondering. The max I could go is 28mm, possibly 32mm at a stretch.
Why only 32 mm? What bike/rims are you riding?
Riding a road bike. (700mm with 32 spoke. Durable. The last set lasted 60,000 +km) The bike I've done all touring on. Can't afford anything else at the moment and hasn't let me down yet. Had 28mm on there before easily. Will try a 32mm and if that doesnt fit on bike will move to extrawheel wheel. A touch more stability will be good back there in any case.
I'm going to opt for Schwalbe Marathon plus'.
Took the bike on some very rough roads in Scotland. Road down to Talia caves in SA.
Appears in all the photos I've seen everyone has to get off and push their bike through soft sand, so the only issue is puncture resistance, which I'm confident about. Going to get mountain bike pedals and keen sandals, no cleats.
I read the ultra-light touring guy did the GRR road on his roadie. Will look in to a stand. Can you recommend one?
