Either 28mm or 32mm. I ride paved roads the same distances I ride my geared bikes and would probably try both. If the 32 was noticeably slower it would be the 28.

I like my Lightning a lot but the Classic is a better buy and more flexible. If I were to buy an additional fg bike it would be the Classic set up with wider tires, fenders and probably a rack.

A Cimarron-Uberti copy of the 1873 Colt in .38. But I also got the best Christmas present ever. Framed pictures of my dog Bowzette. She died several weeks ago. We were together seventeen years.
