@SmithMann, would that be the same proto Jan Heine et al tested for BQ recently, i.e., the fastest tire of all, including 23 and 25mm tubulars? Seems a magical tire.

Molly, are you saying the Eroica rolls faster/smoother than the Grand Bois Cypress in 32mm? If so, with the protection belt, this would make for a helluva tire. I love the feel of the Grand Bois, but shy away from using them for sharp gravel races and rides. Something like D2R2 isn't really a tire cutter, in my experience, more of a volume game, to avoid pinching on the descents. Does the Eroica seem like it will hold up to vicious gravel? The Almanzo tread is too much for one of our local classics, which does not require tread. @talltreecycles

Very excited about tubeless options for dirt road riding, not to mention the new PDX tubular, of course! Mr. Kellog is clearly listening to what riders are asking for, and I can honestly say I am more excited about what Clement is up to than any other tire manufacturer. Now if only the company's website were easier to find....
