I find the geometry to be closer to racing than touring, and the clearances are built for 23's which will be the standard delivered on the bike.
garygkn said:Hi, a Mercian Audax has clearance for 28c tyres with guards would this be ample for most audax riding or would a King of Mercia be better for rides of 100 miles max? I don't wish to carry camping gear etc so my first thoughts were with the Mercian Audax.
