I acquired a 1990 Schwinn Voyageur and would like to swap out the original 27 in. wheels with a set of 700s ( PX-645, 36-hole ) IWith a little muscle I was able to get the 700s on and it didn't even require any adjustment for the rear dérailleur.
The original tires I had on the 700s were 700x38c. Now I have some narrower 700x28c's and the ability to choose many more brands and sizes then I had with the 27's. I mean I had like two choices at my LBS for 27" tires! And a million for 700c!
So I was wondering what the hell my point is because after a couple quick drinks I totally lost my desire to continue on with this post and I'm pretty sure I had something important to ask but dang! I can't remember.
Is the Voyageur a good touring bike?
Are these 700s too wide for touring?
Should I get fenders?
Has anyone else here toured on a voyageur?
Am I even spelling "voyageur" correctly?
