    whoa, i wouldn't use any of those for actual racing, except maybe in the hardest and driest conditions.

    I've got a pair of those kross plus. They're fine for a beater, but no way would they be suitable for racing.

    Agreed about racing. But there are a large number of rider on this subforum that don't race, like me. These are perfect tires for what we need. The price can't be beat either.

    I agree. I don't plan on EVER racing. For the way that I ride, the road tread tires might be just a little wider than I would like but for that price, they really can't be beat.

    what is a good budget option for racing? I just got a pair of Kenda Kross tires for $35, but I need some race tires ASAP as we have a race Thursday. What should I buy that won't break the bank?

    Keep an eye on chainlove.com, Hutchinson Bulldog and Piranha cyclocross tires regularly show up for like $10-15/tire.
