I'm running the soft (orange). Really like it up front.
Thanks for the suggestion with cut Dans. I would say rolling resistance (maybe not so much speed because I'm not fast ;)) matters as on most rides I pedal up (occasionally I go to lift-assisted bike parks). Otherwise maybe simply slapping on 2 Marys would work.
At the risk of getting bashed for diluting the thread I will ask: what are those fav rear tyres of yours?
