After many running injuries I have hung up my road shoes for a while and started looking at endurance cycle racing. Later this year I am racing the trans pyrenees race (TPR) this is a 1500KM self supported race with some gravel sections. It is this that is causing me doubts, all of my bikes are calliper based road frames and the widest tyre I can fit is 28MM and I think I will need more.
To this end I am looking at the possibility of a new disc brake based endurance bike, something that will take 32MM tyres and will be kind on me for multiple day riding.
To date I have been recommended Obrea Avant, Trek Domane but should I be thinking more along the lines of the 3T explore?
All suggestions gratefully received.
Thanks in advance
