Docwells, I just signed up for the seat purchase, thanks for the heads-up. It will take cajones to rip apart a brand new seat, but after my 60 mile ride I'm sure Big Jim and the twins will thank me...

Regarding the Battleaxes, I'm sure they are more tire than I'll ever need on the road. I'm wondering about the gravel and two-track that my friends frequent, though. I always managed (barely) to keep up with those reprobates while riding Broom Hilda (GSA) but then she (he?) was wearing TKC shoes. Anyway, I cant see ditching brand new radials so of course I'll keep them 'til they're worn out.
I'm going with TKC's front and Karro 3 OR K60 rear,depends on weather the Karoos are available by the end of next week or not.
