@WhyFi please post you experiences with the tyres when you've had a chance to ride them for a bit. Thank you.

Latex tubes for gravel/cross use. I ain't got the money for ditching the wheels for TL. Latex is a bit better for a pinch and I'll finally be getting the pressures down to a proper level.

I saw a video recently about CRR and pressure for gravel/cross. It basically told me that I'm a stupid roadie. I was riding my gravel tires at like 50psi. In their test, the optimal was like 30psi in my size tire. Off by 20. Dang.

Definitely, though one of the things that I'm most interested in is tread life, so the verdict on that might take a while.

A half dozen 25 mm Vittoria Rubino Pro Speed IV G2.0 tires and another half dozen Conti Race Light tubes.

A ten syllable product name is too long.

New wheelset.. couldnít decide between DT Swiss RR511 with WI T11 hubs or HED Belgium with T11 hubs. Ended up going with the with the DT/WI combo. Honestly came down to looks and I think the DT looked a little better.

You really canít go wrong with either DT Swiss or HED. I went the same route, picked up the same wheelset but with DT350 hubs. I wanted an alternative wheelset to my AR58s and Chain Reaction Cycles had this on sale too. Sure, itís slightly heavier than the Reynolds AR58s, but I set this up tubeless and itís been on my Storck for the last 200+ miles. The 32 spoke (F&R) count makes it a very tough wheelset for the not-so-great pavement of NYC but yet it rides surprisingly smooth for an aluminum, semi-aero rim.

Nice. It was a tough decision but I figured either one would suit me just fine. I went with 32h as well. Iím upgrading to an 11s Ultegra gruppo so I needed an 11s compatible hub. Figured Iíd just go with a whole new wheelset lol

Decided to buy myself a birthday present and upgrade in size from my Lezyne SuperGPS to a Mega.

https://cimg0.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...03a9e9c82d.jpg

Then, to test it out, I took it on a 31.5 mile ride with probably 500 of my closest friends, lol, at a charity fund raiser. The turn by turn directions worked awesome. Only had one issue with getting my speed/cadence sensor connected but I don't blame the unit, after all, it was new and in a crowd of others connecting to theirs.

Look forward to your experience with the new perf tape, I like the colored dots look (I'm looking at the blue ones myself).
