Beautiful build. Pretty sure

Beautiful build. Pretty sure I know the answer but how are the tires? (mainly how do they compare to other 32's) I've been thinking the getting the 38's.

Titty Blastin'

Wasn't addressed to me, but I have the GB Cypr?s 32c's and they are phenomenal!

GB Cypres Extra l?ger are really good, initially I tried my bike with Vredestein Fortezza TriComp 25, the bike wasn't as comfy and playful as today. GB seems also faster.
I'm just a little bit disapointed about its solidity, I use it for few km (less than 5km) in gravel and rocky road, and the rear tire sidewall has taken a bad hit.
I will protect with a patch inside, I hope it's going ok.

Did you go for the extra

Did you go for the extra l?ger ones? a tire is kinda brutal..

Did not as I got mine from

Did not as I got mine from someone who decided they wanted black tires, so seized the opportunity. I also so have hetres from the same scenario although I haven't ridden them yet.

Grandbois extra leger >> Vittoria Hyper

After few other rides, I feel disapointed with GrandBois extra leger. Ok, this tire is really comfy and fast, but so fragile!!! The sidewall is torn fast and I get frequent puncture with… finally I decided to try other tire to be safety with mixed ride (80% of road but also city road with glass, gravel or even cross track). I tried the GravelKing 28, definitely less confortable and in two rides I saw 3 bad cuts (but no puncture). And now I ride Vittoria Hyper, and I'm really really happy with. Really solid, comfy, quite light and fast too (not as fast as GrandBois, but I'm not envolved in competition). I also get a pair in 35 for my girlfriend's CAADX, and she's so happy with too.
