Six years later and I'm not finding much on these tires either.
Do you still use these? Have you moved on? What would you say today about them?

Here's how my Origin 8 700CX built up. It's heavy but, rides fine. Note, it does fit a mtb crankset best.

Holy cow...

How much of what are you carrying? I know randoneurs who travel with less.
Certainly hope you don't come across any must haves while you're out.

Relatively short and cold ride yesterday. Bailed on morning shop ride today but, tried to save face by riding to work.

Living in Florida we ride year round, barring the really nasties. I haven't really used my fixie very much this winter, and I haven't used it on the trainer at all, however. If you use a fixed gear...

Too much to do before work this afternoon, so no ride for me. Maybe later, like on the trainer. Maybe, I hate the trainer.
