    If you take out your chain for cleaning and lubing, you can hang it alongside a new one and compare length. 1% over 100 links is 1/2", so it's easy to see.

    I have CST Traveler 700x37 on my hybrid. 12000 km in 2 yrs, 5 or 6 flats, still a lot of tread left. They are OK for me.

    All I can say is my fork crown mounted Cyo Premium lets me see the road quite well and nobody ever complained about it being blinding. Don't know about other beam patterns, but this one works for me.

    You must know how to spell gruppo. :)

    You did well IMO. I have a Cyo Premium and like it very much, the beam pattern is adequate for country riding, it's small and it's half the price of the Luxos U.
