DBG; I am running Panasonic Pasella tires on my daily rider/tourer - 700C x 43 rear and 700C x 35 front. I vary the pressure a bit depending on if I have the panniers on it and how heavy I am carrying. Very sweet ride...very close to or equal to other bikes I have with 650B's I have and without the limited supply issues, higher cost, etc.
