I'm in the same situation, however I liked the comfort of the older rig better. I've been working since February and have finally gotten the Wee2 to the same level of comfort. It only took 4000 miles to get it there. Getting decked out for Alaskain trip in June. I'll be spending about five weeks on it so it became very important to get thing feeling right. Now to find the right tires for the trip as the PR3's are about worn out..
