The amount of information available on the net is overwhelming in its breadth, yet underwhelming in it's depth. Right now I've found lots and lots of cycle track information, but it all seems to be lacking much detail about conditions.
We'll be traveling on unsuspended drop bar adventure touring bikes - both capable of fitting 26" x 2" tires and making some decisions on our route will go a long way towards choosing the best tire. I'd rather not put 900+ gram tires on if we're going to be mostly on paved country roads, but if the best sights are along the less traveled muddy tracks then perhaps reasonably fast rolling mountain bike tires do make sense.
Thanks for any input.
