Tire sizes for light duty touring
I am setting up a 96 Bianchi San Remo for light touring and I am not sure what tire size to go with. I think the bike will handle a 700x35 but I know I do not want to go that large. I am thinking about a 28, 30 or 32 and am leaning toward a 30. I intend to target paved roads and do not intentionally plan to use gravel or dirt roads although I realize there might be times I could be faced with unpaved conditions.
Would like some opinions on the good, bad and ugly of the tire size range I am looking at.
