Which 26" tires would you use for Prudhoe Bay to Mexico via the GDBMR? There is about 2100 miles of pavement between the end of the gravel Dalton Highway and Banff for the start of the GDMBR. Use one set of tires such as the Marathon Dureme or Extreme? Or change to something like the Supreme in Fairbanks for the 2K miles of pavement to Banff and the start of the GDMBR?

Satisfied but think they are sometiimes a hassle? or 3. Would go with V-brakes if I could have a do over?

Lets say that all your stuff will fit in 2 rear panniers such as the Ortlieb Back-Rollers. Is there any advantage of using 4 smaller panniers such as 4 Front-Rollers to distribute the weight more evenly between the front and rear wheel?
