Thanks for the fast response!
I mounted some Terrene Elwood 700x40 tires. They’re a great tire, light, fast, and good bite off road. However, they’re at least 3mm bigger on my DT Swiss rims. I have the 650b Switchback Hills on my other wheels and love them, so am thinking about either the Bon Jon Pass or Barlow Pass tires as an alternative. So I’m leaning toward the 35mm Bon Jons as a “road/roubaix” type tire. This is all on an Ibis Hakka MX (wanted an OPEN, but the geometry just didn’t work for me). Your bike is beautiful…I’ll hope for an early Spring for you so you can take it down and put some miles on it!
thanks again…best to you!
