    Well thankyou very much, they're great tires, I got a ripper of a tear in the tread of one, sealed up easy as and kept riding! The gumwall you have to keep clean as it picks up a lot of muck from the road.

    I'm pretty sure Industry 9 has a set for the Slate.

    Not a definitive answer, but I got a set of the pre-recall (non-Mavic) wheels on eBay for $99. They can't run tubeless but I have them setup w/tubes for a backup pavement set. It's worth keeping an eye out.

    I have had a pair custom-made by a wheelbuilder in Cologne. Great support, fair pricing. Can't think of any reason why he wouldn't be willing to send a pair to France. If you like I will get you the contacts...

    I'm thinking of getting a Slate and I have a question on sizing. I'm 6' 2" 34 inside leg, would I be better on a Large or XLarge? It looks like I'm right in the middle of the two sizes. Best to go with the large and have something more playful? Or the longer toptube with the XLarge?

    For reference I used to ride a 58cm Surly Cross Check.
    Fast enough to get there. Slow enough to enjoy the journey.

    I'm on a size L at 6'2 30", seatpost (420mm) is at its absolute max. So, with a 34" inseam you HAVE to go XL I guess...
