    Testing out some ltd color gravelking slick tires in a 32mm. Yesterday I went on a 55 mile road group ride on a pair of the 38 knobby gravelking sk's and they felt glued to the road the entire 3.5 hours. It could have been the 95 degree temps, but they just felt super slow, and I struggled big time not get dropped.

    I am certain that these 32mm slicks will feel quite a bit faster. Visually, I have noticed that the 32mm size actually looks good on my all roads bike while a 23 or a 25mm tire looked goofy. The tires went on without a ton of effort on to the DT 460db rims, and they popped in to place around 50psi of pressure.

    I like GK 32s quite a bit. I used them for summer riding around the Smith Rock area in central Oregon--lots of chip seal, some gravel and sandy soil. They felt smooth and easy. I believe my pressures were 65ish front, 75ish rear.

    I have a theory the GKs are a dog but ymmv. I have 32mm slicks and I have run them from 40-60 psi and I have never managed to connect with them. They left me, after a switch from gravel back to wet asphalt, with a ruined pair of bibs, road rash, and a swollen hip yesterday, too so I am kinda pouty.

    I am 6'2" and 200 big ones btw.

    I really liked how g-ones rode, if not the durability. And Bon Jovi's, obviously.

    Did not get a chance to test them out today. I rode the Neo Primato with carbon wheels and 25mm tires to get every bit of help I could. Another 95+ day and it was a crusher of a group ride with people going all out on these five climbing sections to win a special shop jersey. Three hours later I am cooked and broken, but did not get dropped. Maybe tomorrow I will skip the gravel group ride and just do a solo ride on the gravel tires so I can write up a quick review.

    I hope your hip is feeling better today, I am very curious how these tires link up on varied terrain. I have confidence on the 38mm Sks but I can see myself needing to go gingerly on the 32s.

    I took some more pictures of the bike with 32mm tires. Panaracer advertises many different color choices but I can never find them in stock. Would not mind getting a set of the sks in Bordeaux red once my current ones wear out.

    Some rides are too fast for wide tires, light gearing, heavy wheels, mtb pedals....a pure road bike feels so fast after spending a lot of time on a gravel setup.

    Max built me a road+ frameset, friends brought it over from the US and I had it built up by the best bikeshop in Belgium (Jowan in Kluisbergen, in case you want to know).

    It took a long time but it was worth the wait (and I wouldn't change a thing if I had to start over!)...

    Classy and classic. Love the head badge. The HS/bb accent color works really well.

    Max welded my Hampsten ti Gran Paradiso, which now is under a new owner on the roads of Vermont. Superb welds and fabrication on that one -- and it looks like yours has that too!

    Would love to see some photos of the shop as well as your new ride.

    Congrats on adding another great bike to your stable of amazing bikes.

    Oh, and just picked up on the Trentacinque bars. I'm a big fan of the shape, road feel and control. And I like the way they match the aesthetic of the scale of the ti tubes on your Mosaic (and my ti Alliance).

    Thanks for the comments!

    It was by way of the Hampsten Ti bikes that I became aware of Max' work. You are right; the level of craftsmanship is amazing.
    But I also chose him as a builder because of his down to earth attitude towards bike functionality and esthetics.
    Above all I am amazed how he managed to make sense of my flow of emails regarding the ride characteristics I was hoping for... and condense it all into this design that is just perfect for the kind of riding I had in mind!

    And yes, the Deda's 35 are very nice; it was suggested by the shop when we discussed the build and I was a bit nervous they would be too stiff but not at all; the whole bike feels solid and surefooted and allows for bombing down crap roads with complete disregard of any oh-shit-watch-this-carefulness...

    Wowie. This is perfect. I want to save these photos for when I'm ready for my next bike.

    Craig Gaulzetti got me turned on to the Deda 35s and I'm a near total convert. Love 'em.

    With Max living within a mile from my house- I am already plotting a Kullaway. Either a Ti hardtail, Ti gravel bike or both! ;)

    Indeed. Just looks so right.

    What size tire can you fit? My Alliance Allroad can take a 38 with the good spacing left on the Columbus Futura Gravel disc fork; to my eyes your tires might be larger than that? Or maybe it's the Road+ sticking to the tires:)

    Just caught up with his IG--wow! Big changes for the better in his life and Tarrell's. I didn't even know he'd left town.

    Turn plotting into action. Get yourself a local bike from the new local!

    The ENVE All Road fork specifies 38 mm max without and 32 mm with fenders. So pictured are 32s and frankly, for the kind of riding I do I doubt I need much more. But I will experiment with this after the winter (or rather the wet weather season). 38's, or try a friend's set of 650B wheels and see how I like that, etc

    Fun times!
