    Thats a great idea. I have raced mine on and off road 2 seasons and those wheels are tough as nails. Beat them and they will come back for more.

    Your bike mechanic is wise beyond your wildest dreams.

    If you can't be good at one sport then you can be okay at three.

    They are really stiff and the alloy spokes can fatigue and snap off at the ends rather suddenly. Nothing wrong with using them for CX but some people feel that the alloy spokes will give up more quickly than steel spokes, besides being unforgiving.
    Just another opinion.
