I'm new this year to cross and i'll be runing a clincher wheelset this season. The bike i'm building is a Soma Doublecross with Ultegra 9 speed. I plan on commuting on this bike everyday. My options are to buy a set of smooth-centered cross tires (designed for on and off road) or buy really cheap cross tires that will wear out quickly from riding them on pavement or buy nice cross tires plus a set of more road specific tires and switch them when needed.
Tubular wheelset --- Next year
Second Wheelset --- No $$$
Anyone have any experience with commuting your racing bike that can shed light on tires?
Brands, Models, Widths road and off road?
