I support a group of juniors; take the levers off unless they truly cannot stop the bike safely with the normal levers.

Forget using stem shifters or downtube; teach them to use STI-style. Often,...

And what, pray tell, would you like us to do for traction? I'd guess that you've never raced CX. Try it sometime at a variety of pressures and tell us how you did at 60 psi.
