Relative noob would like opinions on using Ksyrium SSC (front) and Elite (rear) on cross bike to be built. These are currently on my #2 road bike, from which I am going to try to canibalize as much as possible for cross bike to be built. I am planning on doing 4 - 6 races next year in the Northeast. Any opinions on how these should hold up? Thx.
They'll work fine. Because of all the mud, sand, and dirt, cross racing wears down gear faster than typical road riding, but that's just life.
