Hi mate,

Yes i think its a worthwhile mod especially as I am planning a trip around the coastline of Australia next year and tubeless puncture repairs are much easier than spoked wheels, just couldnt get used to the idea of sealing the spokes etc to be able to go tubeless. Plus i got an amazing deal on a set of XRT wheels.
The slight drop in seat height will be welcome but as you say after a few thousand miles you get used to it anyway.
If it ever stops raining we must meet up again for coffee, as I have had my heart operation and fighting fit again.
Cheers Jim

While the seat height may be lower, I'm thinking the neutral handling may be sacrificed.
 It may want to "fall into turns" rather than lean neutrally. Bar input should only be required if trajectory correction is needed. Not to maintain a constant arc. Tire pressure can cause this anomaly too. Usually "too low" tire pressure.
