Took my Tricross SS out to one of the local single-track trails today. I had ridden that trail many times on various mountain bikes, but this was the first time I braved it on the cyclocross. I gotta say, when I got back to the trail head the only thing I was wondering is how much my Stumpjumper is worth since I obviously wont ever need it again!
The only downside is that I am HARD on my wheels. I'm not a clyde (6' 3" 165#) I just seem to find that wrong spot to hit. I've bent my share of 29er and 26er wheels, and with the amount of wobble in the stock Singlecross wheels tells me that I need to plan an upgrade sooner rather than wait for a serious crash.
So, I'm looking for a strong, reasonably priced (always negotiable) cross wheel. Pre-built would be nice (but not necessary) as long as it's SS/FG compatable. This bike does everything and I do flip between fixed/free at least weekly depending on where I ride.
