Any recommendations for a 32mm (or thereabouts) 700c tire?
Intended use: riding a 1200K in Uzbekistan, over legendarily lousy pavement. I believe all the roads are paved; just very, very poorly maintained.
I'm typically a 23mm guy. Done nearly every brevet on Conti 4000s. Great tires. I like skinny tires.
Bit I've been running some (allegedly) 28mm Conti 4-seasons lately, thinking that would be a good choice. They're cushier than the 4000s, by far, but they strike me as a bit on the narrow side and I think I want something that'll eat up more potholes and shattered pavement than these things will.
I've got CX tires in 35 and 38mm... but I don't need all that tread. Or want all that weight. It's gonna be dry (it's a desert). I need something that'll take some abuse, but I don't need the traction.
