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.

Fulcrum 7 wheelset for CX racing/training?

I'm on the fence on purchasing a new pair of Fulcrum 7's for some road miles and then CX races in the Fall. I weigh about 190# so i can't afford to be too much of a weight weenie, nor would i be racing anything more advanced than B-Mens.
Obviously the wheels will hold for road riding but am curious if anyone has any experience with taking them off road.

Never used them myself. I have used Campy Chorus and Daytona hubs. I'm using Zonda's now. They all work perfect. My Chorus are actually 1995 8 sp converted to 9/10 sp. They're 14 years old and still perfect. Try this review of the 7's http://www.roadbikereview.com/cat/wh...1_2490crx.aspx
