    What's the problem? Tour with a front biased load and don't ride hands off with a rear biased load.

    In the big picture another set of tires isn't a great expense and it's fun to see how the bike handles with different tires. I find there are other tires that roll easier and don't feel as squiggly...

    The wheel is the thing your tire goes on, you don't need a 40 spoke wheel. You should have a 32mm+ tire.
