What would you suggest is the best tire for that ride on the front and back? We'll be pretty heavy with camping gear and water/petrol as well. We are both pretty cautious riders... going fast when it's safe and slow in the tough stuff.
Any and all suggestions are welcomed!
I am looking for this magic tire too.
