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.

Calling any 26"-CX-racers; Tire choice?

So yeah- I converted a 90's no-suspension canti-brake MTB ('92 Paramount 50 series) to my low-budget 1-st season cyclocross racer.
I know; it feels a little funny with such tiny wheels out there, but whatever.

What tires do you suggest.. I was thinking Continental Crosscountries but they seem a bit wide...
Perhaps the 26 x 1.35 Schwalbe CX Pro - Sport (559) ????

Should I avoid going any bigger than 1.5" or 1.75" wide?

Thanks for any help- Keep rockin' the 26"'s!!!

(Before conversion)----now has clipless, new handlebar, no cages, etc...

Not tyres, but you might find this interesting:

- the Kona in the process of being "dropped" is mine.
