    I've been Googling these every day in the hopes that they're available. I've been riding T-Serv Protex in 32 for a while and I really like them. But I'm interested in these new tires, even if they are only available in smaller sizes for now..

    The GKs are really nice tires. I purposely rode them overinflated to see if I could damage the casings on rocky trails (which I have done with Paselas), but no problems thus far.

    It looks exactly like the panasonic made grand bois tires i use. Wonder if panaracer just renamed them.

    It's time to turn away
    And then tomorrow's dreams
    Become reality to me

    I'm not 100% sure, but I don't believe that the Grand Bois tires utilize the breaker belt found in the Gravelking tires.

    Glad to hear the positive reviews. I'm just waiting for an online dealer to get them in stock...

    Is the 700x28 true to size, or is it smaller like so many tires?
    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    The caption under one of the pictures says that the 28 measured 28.5 on 23mm rims.
