I have a Sampson Kalispell from 1995- Still my main road bike- looks a lot like that. It's also bead blasted titanium and it has always looked exactly the same.

Anyone used Panaracer Gravel Kings?

Late to the party. I use Gravel King 28's for my commuter and they ride smooth. Durable so far, no punctures after a few hundred miles. The file tread is gone on the rear. I like them for the price.
