Gear Talk / Tire Selection for the Continental Divide Trail
« on: September 23, 2012, 01:47:14 pm »
I'm several months away from this, but am considering riding from Whitefish to Denver, largely on the CDT.  I've noticed from most of the photos and blogs I have looked at that people are riding 2" knobbies of one brand or another.  Most of the trails and roads seem to be packed gravel rather than loose technical terrain.  How do any veterans feel about something like 2" Schwalbe Marathons with a little less rolling resistance?  Are knobbies definitely necessary, or just a good thing in some limited areas?
