Hey RPM, the tyres are Paves, I erally wanted old amber wall CX's but couldn't find any. I had some Open Chrono TH AW but they're too thin for city ridin'. Tried to get the Veloflex ones too, but outa stock. I like these ones though ;-) I take what you and dogsballs say about the arm but I don't like the empty hanger thread thing going on. Also can you get 1/2 link in 3/32? Did you check the Criterium bars, drilled lugs+my favourite, the QoH?
