A few comments which may be useful. We tour on tandem (26") with camping gear and wear is generally faster. For tours on mostly rail-trail, we use 2" Schwalbe Duremes. Strong, durable, wonderful for rail-trail surface and similar in weight to Supremes. For tours mostly on road for >1000 miles, 1.5" Marathon plus, because flats are a PITA on tour. We use 1.6" Supremes on day rides, a great relatively light tire, however, they do seem more prone to cuts than the M+ or Duremes. The rubber seems more supple on Supremes.
