    Anyone tried Vittoria Terreno Zero? Look to fit the bill for road biased mixed use tyres for those resistant to supremes.

    Thanks, exactly what I'm looking for and it's so ugly that I won't have to remember to take it into shops.

    Any recommendations for a GPS solely for navigation, decent battery life would be a massive bonus.

    Sounds perfect will embrace my inner geography teacher and try them, do they come with tan sidewalls? Quite honestly I've also found Gravel Kings annoyingly sluggish on the road, so maybe I should be looking in this direction.

    35c+, sorry I wasn't particularly clear earlier, want a tyre that'll be able to handle dry weather offroad/gravel, but won't be overly cumbersome on tarmac. I find that I do far more riding in pursuit of gravel than actually on the stuff, so looking for something similar to a G-one speed.

    Can anyone recommend me a hard wearing tubeless tire with a bias towards paved riding, Gravelkings keep puncturing on me and G-One Speeds appear poor value with fast wear, thanks

    Tom Dumoulin needed one of these at the 2017 Giro.

    It's all good did at least have the foresight to check that after reading the GRX blurb and the frames band on. Had ordered the the GRX derailleur with the chainset, but couldn't understand why they had been moved 2.5mm which @edscoble has kindly explained. Have only ever ridden a standard compact I've been getting in a right flap trying to work out the best gearing for mixed tours, but think am there now, all advice has been appreciated, thanks

    Thought @edscoble was talking about the GRX specific front derailleur that Shimano say is required to run the chainset. Spoke to a mechanic at Evans cycles when ordering and he was confident that a medium cage derailleur would cope with 46/30 chainset and an 11/34 cassette if I corrected the chain length accordingly. That wiggle guide obviously suggests differently, might change it to an 11/32 cassette to avoid any hassle, thanks for the advice.

    Yeah clocked that earlier. Is that shimano profiteering, never even considered that chain rub on tires might be a problem.
