In my research I am debating between these two 451 sized tires. Wondering if anyone has experience with both of these tires. They seem similar but I am getting conflicting advice from Schwalbe and BF as to which is more durable.
I am a 210 pound rider, like to go fast BUT the roads I am riding on my BF PR are 80% asphalt with the rest being cobblestone, crushed stone and some offroad. Obviously durability and puncture protection are paramount and speed is 2ndary. Understand the Durano's are very hard to mount which is certainly a red flag for me.
Also contemplating going to a 1 3/8ths rear tire as per another member's suggestion and keeping the front at 1 1/8th.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
