Back to gugie.... Sort of. When I was looking for tires for this new conversion he suggested 650bx42 paselas and I did order a set with the protite protection. However before that I caught a deal on soma 42s. The Soma's are very nice tires and the paselas are a tad heavier and stiffer. However the flat protection is appealing on a tour. Anyway the paselas came today and I put them on and rode about 10-12 miles to a coffee shop and a music store and I have to say they don't give up much if anything. I like em! The little hairs sticking out did rub my fenders just under the fork crown but I took care of that. Ty again gugie.

Agree about the Soma 42s being nice- they feel significantly better than the Grand Bois Hetres, IMO. How they wear is yet to be determined... Alas, they've been 'out of stock' for quite a while now.

There are several discussions of propane-O2 on the framebuilders forum @AngryScientist . Here is one to start out with: Propane Torch Setup
Here are some good threads on Velocipede Salon, with the Straight Poop from Mr. Doug Fattic himself:Keep in mind in a thread that lasted for years, the "correct" answers changed over time, so you might do well to read them in reverse to get the latest recommendations.
