    Umm, yup. Once again, No Time Toulouse was shooting from the hip.

    For your weight with 25mm tires, 90F/110R is about right. You could get away with less, but at the risk of pinch flats.

    Yes I have. The only other major difference I've found is with carbon bars but 1" carbon bars are too sketchy. Tire pressure makes a difference more so than the tire (unless you use really cheap tires), but I despise the feel of anything under 100 psi so that's a no go for me.

    Carbon seat posts flex way more than you think. I have a rear camera mounted on the saddle and compared to the aluminum seat post there is way more vertical movement (you can judge it against the rear tire in the frame).
