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.

What's the most versatile tire?

What are people's fave cross tires, and why? Which ones offer the most bang for the buck in terms of versatility for a variety of terrains (although forget about the extremes for now). What about sizes?

Definently 32c Continental Twister Pros w/55 psi for wet courses and Ritchey Speed Max 30c w/60psi for dry courses.

i've been using the maxxis mimo larsens this year, and i've been quite impressed. of course, i have nit had one remotely "dry" race, so i can't tell you how their dry performance is.

Tufo 30s. Usually about 45 psi, sometimes higher. If it's icy, I'll run a little lower.
