    Thanks, do you know what your tires weigh, as in actual weight in grams? My experience with conti tires is they are usually more narrow and heavier than manufacturer claims. :)

    thanks, FWIW I was told you can use bigger tires in a regular race if you are not competing and trying to win points or however it works for the UCI ranking
  8. putting 9/10 speed cranks on 7 speed drivetrain?

    I have a 90s Trek 750 multitrack, I love it but it's heavy, and someday I want to swap the 7 speed STX parts for 9 or 10. A 7 speed 11-28 cassette is not my cup of tea.

    Thinking of picking up...

    I admire Lemond in that he was willing tell the truth about Lance when Lance was the hero, and kept it up despite getting insulted and Trek killing his bike business for doing so. That's integrity.

    light, fast 29x1.8" or 1.75" tires ?

    I'm looking for big rubber for my cross bike, which has 47mm of tire clearance, just over 1.8"

    Looking for lightweight, tubeless, and tread appropriate for pavement, dirt, grass.

    I would assume a 700c front wheel would raise the front end up too much for a fast racy geometry.

    I hope the production version has rack mounts, this would be perfect for mixed surface touring

    Thanks, I found a set of pacenti rims in 20/24, inner in 18.5mm. maybe with some strong hubs.

    I was also looking at the HED c2 plus rims, 25 outer ~20mm inner, may be better for the 50mm tires.
