Well, what did you decide?

I've always run the extra lights, but got Endurance Plus for my touring bike. Between those two, you can definitely detect a difference.

I've never had problems with flats with the extra lights, and now I am going tubeless. The huge advantage of this is that I can use Petey's valve stems that match my hubs.

I got ultra lights in the 32mm. they will go on h+son archetype rims with white industries hubs (and just for fun am building a bullet proof tubie set of wheels with ambrosio nemesis rimbs, hope hubs and fmb cobblestone 29mm tires)
