I'm just curious about options, jur. My hardy Vitesse has served me fairly well but it still struggles over London roads despite the 20 x 2 tires and would benefit from being a little more portable. I was wondering if a Curve / Picolo or something similar with even fatter tyres would be a better overall compromise but it looks as though that's not an option. I'll be getting a 2.35 BA liteskin for the front wheel on the Vitesse when they're available, possibly for the rear too though that'll mean losing the fender and I think I'd rather not do that. Perhaps something like a 2nd hand Downtube Mini with the rear suspension would be a nice ride but I doubt I could get hold of one in the UK.
