    Will be curious to see your thoughts on the Yokozuna calipers!

    I swore I wasn't going to have a wheelsize in the family between 406 20" and 26" but ended up getting a good-value-but-heavy 24"...

    My apologies, it was a tongue-in-cheek comment.

    My understanding is that it rises by about 10-20 psi, generally not enough to really matter - but enough that you don't necessarily want 80+ PSI in tires, or much more than 35psi in say, gravel...

    31 is the new 28? Been riding S-Ones today which probably measure out around 31. No discernible difference to me other than more confidence cornering + comfort. Of course, the smooth frame and nice...

    Yeah I ran 160/160 on almost all my disc brake bikes (5+ ?). The only exception was my Kona Jake which was 140s for most of the time, but I decided I preferred 160s across the board.
