    Don't see maxxis.
    The closest thing to a Re-Fuse is probably a Gatorskin which shows 8W more rolling resistance than a 4000S II at 100PSI.

    8W probably wouldn't be noticeable. Though there is only one way to find out.

    Yes, 8 watt per tire is noticeable. 16 watts is a lot of free power to get or give up.

    While Surleys are good bikes, they are a bit overbuilt.

    All City has a range of gravel/touring/cyclocross framesets, all steel with external and internal ED coating for rust protection.
