I hate to seem like one of those people with lots of questions and no answers, but here comes another question:
In less than a month I am biking from Santiago down south, hopefully all the way south. Can anyone who has done this route tell me if my bike will probably make it? I have a Nishiki Cresta (touring bike) with 27'' x 1 1/4 wheels. I ordered these tires to ride on http://store.airbomb.com/mmAIRBOMB/I...e/q/TR2101.jpg which are 1 3/8 wide. From looking at people's photo galleries of similar trips I think EVERYONE has been riding a mountain bike with even fatter tires. Should I be worried? Abandon all hope?
Thanks to everyone who has helped me prepare for this trip!
