True, if we're talking about podium in Paris. It's just that of all the ways to lose time, crashing is the least satisfying from this fan's POV, and it's nice to have a few more players mixing it up...

The fatter knobbies provide and take exactly what you think they would relative to a more traditional CX tire... tons of traction, tons of rolling resistance, and some nice cush in rougher spots. ...

Go here (http://forums.mtbr.com/showpost.php?p=6650253&postcount=872), be happy. You can fit Bonty 1.8's (with perhaps some shaving of knobs in the rear).

Ergo's and midges are a great combo. A better match than Shimano STI, imo.

Set it up so the drops are the primary hand position, and everything else falls into place. The thumb shifter is very...

+1. If the question is not riding to CX practice or a trail, I would just suck it up and put on the miles. If you really like your muds and don't want to wear them, buy some cheapy semi-slicks for...

It's a truss fork. I'm no framebuilder/structural engineer, but I think it does help serve as a shock absorber, or more accurately allows the regular fork blades to be built to flex without loss of...

Rim manufacturers are really conservative. I regularly run 44s on OpenPros, and McClung owners are fond of 2.3 Exiwolfs on OpenPros, about as wide as you can get in a 700c tire. (Picture shows a...

If you can't ride a CX bike, a rigid 29er is the next best option, IMO. 33-20 might be a little low though, maybe look for a 42t chainring or a 16t cog. Also, your geared 26" bikes are fine. No...
