I am looking to switch out my older Continental Touring tires for something fresh before I go on my tour from Pitt to DC on the C&O Canal. A majority of the time I use this bike as my daily commuter in the city, so want to make sure it does not have too much drag, but also want something for the 80% hard pack and 20% loose seen on the trail (along with possible rain).
Not looking to bike through the Amazon, yet, but want something that can meet in the middle of the city and country.
Bike is a Surly LHT with 26 x 1.75 tires.
Ive heard alot about the Schwalbe's but not sure which would be appropriate. Or shoulf I just get a new set of Continentals?
