42mm tires,

even at 60 tpi, will dampen the road chatter as much as fork rake.

From Planet X. They seem always to be on sale, so even with shipping from the UK they're inexpensive. 37mm folding.

I'm 180

And I ride a 1985 Trek 720. The 720 was made for loaded touring, as were the bikes you list. What you would be asking for is not trouble, but a smooth, dependable ride.
