Wondering what some of the preferences for tires are for long distance touring. I'm planning a 10,000 mile trip and normally use Serfas tires on my Fuji Touring bike, typically 700 x 28. I intend to use 700 X 32 on this trip. I usually get 2,000 - 2,500 miles before needing to replace them, and plan to do so on my trip at about the same intervals, unless needed sooner. Anyone have favorites they would like to suggest?
Also, does anyone have experience with tire liners? I have used the thicker and bulkier "thorn resistant" tubes before and once got over 20,000 miles over a period of two years on the front one before replacing it, while getting over 5,000 on the rear. I'm thinking of using those on my trip. Any thoughts about tubes and tube protection? Thanks.
