Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Michelin Transworld Sprint

Anyone use these for cyclocross? Any experience with them in general? I just got my REI dividend and I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to spend it. They look like they might be ok, and the price is definitely right:

I am a little concerned about how they might handle in mud.

Thanks for any advice you can provide.

I put a pair opn a fixed gear once and they held up OK and they are heavy at 555 grams. But the price is right. Not good for a mud tire....

I would say for the same amount of money, a Kenda Kwick or lower-end Ritchey Speedmax but I didn't see either available from REI. Sorry.

i'm sure you can find something 8*)
