I'm about to put new tires on my '89/'90 (has mix of components from both years) Schwinn Voyageur, I would prefer the best tires for distance touring.
Unfortunately 27" x 1 1/2" tires seem to be a thing of the past, 27" x 1 1/4 are the widest 27" tires advertised.
The tops choices in 27" x 1 1/4 seems to be (in no particular order)...
27" Schwalbe Marathon HS420.
27" Continental Tour Ride.
27" Continental Gatorkins.
The frame on this bike does a lot to soak up road vibrations but I'd still prefer the widest tires possibe. The Marathons are 32mm wide while the Gatorkins are 28mm wide. No info on the Tour Rides.
All input valued.
