Yeah, I've been giving Garmin Express a go. That thing never seems to be able to connect to the server, no matter what I do: all I want is an update to my old Garmin Edge 500.

I'm thinking that the posture on a CX bike would be different. Would be a little bit more upright, wouldn't you?

If only I could afford it. I work a low-paying job, so a $1000 bike is a month's investment for me.

Deciding between two used CX bikes

So I've decided to get a used CX bike at my size, and found two bikes that fit me.

One is a 2010 Cannondale CAAD9 Cyclocross at $1200.

The other is the 2009 Trek XO1 at $750.

Both of them...

Here's the problem, and I'm going to be clear about this: I'm going over the ISO lists of available tire sizes, and that kind of tire isn't listed. The thinnest a retail 507mm tire can get is 1.5." ...

So basically what you're saying is that any bottom bracket assembly will fit in there?

I really don't have a crank planned out; I just wanted to know what kind of options I had available to me.

Tire Sizing Systems (http://sheldonbrown.com/tire-sizing.html)

The ETRTO/ISO numbers 507 and 520 refer to 507mm and 520mm, which are the bead seat diameters of the rims. ...

Stop overreacting: not being to find the exact model of tire that originally came with the bike, that's not Kona's fault. If it was, there would be no ETRTO 507 tires available, period, but there...

Now that is interesting: 24x1.25" isn't even a tire size. It's not ETRTO, and there's no sign of a 24x1 1/4" under 520. And the Locust is no longer listed on the Maxxis website, though I can find...
