Chatting with Gary on email now
I had read your post already and found it very useful. I don't think there was a huge amount in it acceleration wise, both were notably better than the camber though. I definitely need to get one on demo to see how I get on with it and climbing. I've no love for climbs, but I don't want to be making life too difficult!
I'd have the Continentals off straight away for something lighter and switch to tubeless too. So that would help.
I'm going to get to a few LBSs and see what options there are on a frame build or tweaking a Pro to get the balance. A wheelset under 2kg is going to be important I think.
