    I think you can't go wrong with BC 100s or SD104 - at least based on reviews. Found a good deal (350$) on the BC 100s (188cm) - should get them tomorrow or day after.

    Not sure which one to buy for a 70/30 touring/inbounds use. The difference in weight is negligible. I already have a Vipec and love how easy you are able to switch between modes. Tried the Tecton in...
