Has anyone used the 40mm maxxis re-fuse? I'm considering it in the short term while I save up for a pair of the snoqualamie pass'

Get the Compass right away, you know it makes sense. You can even sell them if you don't like them with only a small loss.

Being in the UK it's a bit more awkward because of shipping and customs

Velo Vitality in the UK carries the full range of Compass tyres. Cheaper than having them shipped from the US.

You're welcome :lol: After riding LEL (on Jon Bon tyres) I just can't imagine what it would be like to ride long distance in the UK on narrow/high pressure tyres, the tarmac on some of the main roads is worse than the average gravel path...

The American gravel grinders need to experience a UK B road
