Yes indeed to Orange Seal. I've blathered about it enough, but it makes
possible the use of "fragile" tires that otherwise would be impossible due
to flats; be it put in tubes (at least, above 30-35 psi; it wouldn't work
for me in tubes at 20 or so) or of course tubeless.

Oh, and Patrick: what pressures do you find best for the Snoqualmie Passes
for your combination of pavement and rough stuff? (I find ~23/26 good for
the 50 mm F Freds here, but might go to 25-6/28-30 for rockier and rootier
terrain.
