Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking 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.

Tubular Rims?

What tubular rims are you using for CX. How many spokes? What pattern? How much do you weigh? And, whats your favorite tubular?

I'm using Mavic Reflex and (of all things) Campy Seoul 88 rims. The first is with D/A hubs and 32 Wheelsmith DB spokes. The Campys get 9s Chorus hubs and 32 DB Sapim spokes. This set is wonderfully light. I weigh 225. Yeah, this stuff is rugged.
