I spent a very nice 12 days riding from Land's End to John o' Groats on this bike (which included some of the steeper climbs the West Country has to offer).

600-odd (700?) miles on GP4000 sounds pretty brave. How wide are they? Were you using a tire liner? Or did you have a well-paved route?

trusty gp4000s

I've found GP4000s (23mm width) to be pretty robust and capable of dealing with high mileages - eg, the LEJOG route we took was around 1100 miles, and I remained puncture-free throughout. That said, it was all on-road (the quality of the tarmac was good in places, though it was quite gravelly elsewhere; not sure how the tyres would deal with large stretches of very poor quality unpaved roads).
