Me and a friend are taking part in the welsh ride thing. A trip across mid wales where you plot your own route and bikepack it with bivvi bags. We are going to try taking on bridle paths.
At the moment I have two choices of cross bike a steel planet x kaffenback or an aluminum cube race pro with carbon forks.
The planet x has very limited clearance on tyres biggest I can get in with mud guards are 31c at thats tight. Take the mudguards off I could prob get 34c
Cube could go upto 40c but then no mudguard fittings.
Am I best to get some cross brake levers upto too so im mot on hoods all the tine?
Which options would be best. Any sfvice would be great.
