I'm in the market for tires on my LHT right now, and I know there's another thread right now about tires, but my question is a bit different.
The tires I have now are 700x38 WTB pathways. My LHT serves as my commuter, and many times after about 20 city miles I feel like I'm having to lug these tires around, as opposed to vice versa. They're great on gravel, but most of my riding and touring will be on pavement. Keep in mind that I have a good amount of saddle to bar drop on my bike, and a Brooks pro. My question is, what's the ideal size for fast touring tire, if that's not an oxymoron. I'm looking at 32c vittoria randonneurs, but they almost seem to small. Something like a gatorskin has too little tread. Would a 32c schwable marathon something or other be good? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!
