It is high on my short list. I think that I could use it on both bikes as well (I like consistency -- less spares to keep around).

The reason I was looking at the Kenda Kourier was for its combination of wide width(40mm) , weight, flat protection and price point. After measuring the frame this weekend the anything wider than 28 (maybe 32) is out.
