I didn't have any complaints about Paselas in 26" when I used them. It would be cool if they made one in 47-50mm width, though. :)

I haven't actually used one of those -- does the straddle-release open enough to let a 38mm tire through? A Tektro 559 sure doesn't; I would have needed to add an extra QR in the system anyway.

At least for my gravel riding, a 52/13 top gear never comes in handy, so I'd probably lose the 13T in favor of a 14T or 15T, or shrink the big ring in order to free up derailleur capacity. :thumb:
