Replying to Janet . . . . I've found the 28 Schwalbe One tyres fine, though not much riding so far on wet muddy lanes on them.  If they made the Supremes in 28 size, I would probably go for them, but I have no plans to change now.  And for my riding style, rim brakes have suited me fine,, again no plans to change.

Best wishes

Dave, will the new Audax have bosses for front racks on the fork or are you using the mk4 fork?

They are using the Mk4 fork or a Carbon fork. But theres no reason we couldn't use a Mk3 fork if we have one in the right rake and colour left.

Replying to Janet . . . . I've found the 28 Schwalbe One tyres fine

I also have 28 mm Schwalbe One tyres on my one remaining derailleur bike, a Woodrup light tourer from 1977.

I generally prefer wider tyres, but the Schwalbe One are reasonably comfortable, probably even better for a light rider. These tyres have performed well so far, including one trip that ended with very wet weather, although this wasn't planned, as I generally only use the bike on good roads and in good weather. I dislike cleaning derailleurs now that I have the choice of riding hub gear bikes instead.
