    What is the best value tubular for CX?

    I'm going to try tubulars this year in the Seattle area MFG series. The early races seem to be mostly dry and grassy, mid season to late season there has been mud. What would you recommend as an all purpose tubular tire that won't break the bank? <$75 each.

    If you can pay a bit more I'd go for the PDX. It's a great tire if you only have one set of wheels. Really works well in everything and it's very durable. If that's too much $ then the Grifos would be next best. Not great in the mud but it'll do ok. Can usually find them in that price range too.

    I like the Tufo Primus as an affordable all-purpose. But note that the mud we have in Florida CX likely bears no resemblance to Seattle mud.
