In that case you can disregard most of what I wrote, I don't regret writing it, IMO they are things worth considering.
Though the 28s may have to be 25s on either bike and tarmac has been a bit scarce on some of the Audax I've done this year
Looking at Spa's ever growing product line, have you considered the Aubisque? Seems to be a disc braked Audax with some tube manipulation, I've never seen one but if you're heading that way anyway it might be worth a ride.
