Could you recommend any cyclocross tire for my road bike?
I have Raleigh R500 with 700c rim. I'm planning to keep using my center pull brakes. So the cyclocross tire should fit 700c and between the center pull brake shoes. There is some clearance between the brakes and rim. Hope there's a cyclocross tire for it.
I thought about Michelin 700x30c. but I wasn't sure if it will fit mine. Anyone tried it.
I ride my road bike to work. The route that I use don't have dirt . So it won't have problem with dirt clogging between brakes and rims. It's just that cement and aspalt are broken here and there making small pot holes. I'm afraid that I might hurt myself and my bike going through that road one of these days. I thought cyclocross tire might save me from it.
I won't be using my bike for off road that often, so I feel that changing tire should be sufficient, instead or converting my bike to cyclocross bike or buying one.
I would appreciate any recomendation. Thanks for the wonderful forum. Hope I can participate more in the future.
