Sorry for creating another of these threads...I've had a look elsewhere for an answer but have yet to be convinced!
I'm looking for a good light touring tyre for mostly road use but also tracks/cycle paths etc. Unlikely to anything really off road. I won't have loads of stuff, rear panniers with the usual stuff, tent & sleeping bag etc. No front panniers to fill and I weigh in at about 11 stone.
I've seen loads of people recommending Schwallbe Marathon and Marathon Plus, but having checked them out they seem like overkill. Very knobbly and REALLY heavy! I was wondering if anyone knows anything more suitable for my requirements? I have found a good deal on Schwalbe Modials but wondering if even these are too much?
Thoughts and opinions very welcome!
