i've tried a few different search terms and couldn't find anything, but sorry if this is repetitive.
i don't do much cross racing, definitely not enough to warrant buying a cross bike (yet), but i'm doing a race in two weeks. the last one i used a mountain bike, and just didn't feel all too comfortable racing on it, so i'm planning on using my steel bianchi road bike (w/ the standard short reach dual pivot caliper brakes, which are allowed for this race). The course is fairly flat and isn't suppose to be that rough. however, I'm having trouble finding a good set of tires to use that will have clearance. I think i'll need something between 25-28mm that has some sort of tread, or knob. Does anyone have any reccomendations?
