Widest Tires on a Raleigh Sojourn
If you ride a Sojourn, I have a question for you: what are the widest tires you have used with it?
I am planning a tour of Colorado this summer that includes a lot of dirt roads, and I'm looking for wider tires to put on my Sojourn. I've been happy with the stock tires (Vittoria Randonneur Cross 700x35), but I think I want something wider for this. The widest tire my LBS stocks is 700x40, but the one they stock is for hybrids and isn't real sturdy. So I have to mail-order these, and I'd rather not do that blind.
If you have a Sojourn, please tell me what tires you use (size and make/model), whether or not you run fenders with them, and about how much clearance you have between the tire and the frame. Thanks for the help.
