Clement Strada LGG??

I am possibly looking for a skinnier tire to use as a training/rough road tire on my cx/everything bike. I found the 700x28 Clement Strada LGG 60 TPI for a pretty good price online. Does anybody use these? Any insight?

I've got the 32mm version on my fixed gear. Only spent a little time on it but so far it's a nice riding tire that handles rough roads well and rolls fast.

I have that tire in the 120TPI and 25mm size on a road bike and love em. They are easily the best tire of the 3 ive had on the bike. Easy to mount, relatively light for what I want to do, and feel great. Im guessing part of all that is the 120TPI, but I would expect the 60TPI to be great still.
I put probably 500mi of road riding on them this season- thats a combo of city riding and county highway riding, so they met all sorts of cracks, potholes, and road junk, but I didnt get a flat. Not a massive number of test miles, but ive been happy with the lack of flats so far!

The 120 tpi version (28 x 700) is my favorite non-treaded road tire.

(I also use their XPLOR tires for on/off road).
