26c tires back on... another new 20m Power PR... but atleast the segment times are in the realm now.. I'll need a good quiver of wheels for this bike, but it will be fun.

I'm currently riding a 1x cx bike with 38mm gravelkings and feel your pain!
I really liked my Compass tires but once I built up a road bike I put the cross bike back to dirt mode.

Indeed... just shocked at how much slower even 30c was... 38c well I'd expect it.

I sold my Parlee Zero for this Parlee Zero XD which is actually not all that different other then tire clearance... I was going to buy a new Aero bike... so I guess I have even more reason now.. otherwise risk getting turned inside out on fast group rides.

Schwalbe ProOne's are always a bithc on Enve rims for me.... wow what a struggle. I'll be making the call if I even get a unrepairable flat on the road, I just dont see how a tube would be able to survive the tire irons getting these tires on.

Same experience here, two instances on a set of Reynolds and my wife's Belgium+. On the reynolds I had to cut them off with a rasor blade when they were toast.
