    I have both the 28's and the 40's and both are pretty amazing tires in my opinion. My former go to gravel tire was the Clement Xplor until I rode the Gravel Kings. The GK's are VERY fast tires,...

    Hard to tell but it looks like it might be a "W" which would be Wheelsmith and they are great quality. Either way, if the price is right and the build seems good I would go for them and not worry...

    Drew nailed it. A sloppy build is your problem, not the component choices.

    At 235, there is no reason a 32 spoke wheel is not capable of supporting your weight. I weigh around 220 and ride...

    Which road were you on? I am in the springs to and curious.

    Usually for nasty washboard roads, stuffing as big of tires that you can in your frame will help a fair bit but if it is many many...

    Stans tubeless tape in the same width works just as good as velotape. If you do not have either and have no desire to go tubeless you can use any rim tape you have laying around. Velocity claims...
