    I'm very happy with my Schwalbe Mondials in the 2.0 width. I run them at 80-90 psi on pavement and lower the pressure to 40 psi when on gravel and dirt.

    Nice looking frame.

    Check the chainstay length. If you want to use rear panneirs, you'll want to make sure you'll have enough heel clearance.
