Which one is better for long tour biking:
size 26, thick tire
size 28, tire
26 inch is better. Much better supply of spare parts.
Nik is correct. 26" is more common especially if traveling in more remote areas.
This week I tested both 26 and 28 for about 20 km asphalt road;
1) My 26 bike was a good American Cannadel and my 28 was Merida.
It was much easier with 28!
The route was slope down and slope up.
Agreed 26 is the right choice.
