Standard tubes work. I had a knard on the stock front wheel on my Fargo for a year and it worked. I just had a rabbit hole built for it a couple weeks ago.

Don't be scared. You will lose, most of us do. CX is a blast, but a total ass kicking. I like the six hour mountain bike races, they are the only type I can place near the top in.

Sounds like the Cogburn would be perfect for you. If you want to save a few bucks, look for an older Pugsley with the double walled rims. They are just about bombproof but heavy. Most of the newer...

Above 60F don't worry about it. You will still be soaked with sweat inside a rain jacket. If it is colder I will either wear a merino wool jersey or a fleece pullover with tights.

If you are running that wide of a cassette don't bother with the triple unless you plan on a lot of trailer pulling or loaded touring. A compact double with 34/50 rings is a good setup. I run a...

Both of the site you listed gave me a headache. Best roadbar they had was the Ritchey Classic bend. Try shopping at Velo Orange or Rivendelle.

Another good thing about nine speed is that your local bike shop mechanic may have take offs that he will trade for a six pack.

Those trigger shifters won't work with drop bars. Go 9 speed with bar end shifters on Nitto Noodle or Rando bars. This combo has worked for awhile and will continue to.
