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.

I've been Googling these every day in the hopes that they're available. I've been riding T-Serv Protex in 32 for a while and I really like them. But I'm interested in these new tires, even if they are only available in smaller sizes for now..

The GKs are really nice tires. I purposely rode them overinflated to see if I could damage the casings on rocky trails (which I have done with Paselas), but no problems thus far.

I'm not 100% sure, but I don't believe that the Grand Bois tires utilize the breaker belt found in the Gravelking tires.

Is the 700x28 true to size, or is it smaller like so many tires?

The caption under one of the pictures says that the 28 measured 28.5 on 23mm rims.
