    Others may have a better answer, but I would guess HTC-Columbia is interested in helping with the chase to ensure the break gets caught, but not really willing to burn up their leadout train guys...

    Horner seems to say that there was one spot in particular that everyone thought was unsafe (the descent where the big crash occured) even when it's dry, and that the roll in was "everyone's idea and...

    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, 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...

    When I raced SS, I put 2 masterlinks in my chain such that I could easily shorten it by removing the necessary links after the cog change.

    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...

    While I don't think it would blow the bead off (unless it was already compromised by installation, as mentioned elsewhere in this thread), I personally would find 75psi in a 35mm tire unnecessarily...

    This^^

    Also, I concur that the mustaches are a reasonable choice for general riding, but haven't yet found a situation where I'd prefer them over drops, least of all actual cross racing.

    The OpenPro/Ultegra's are always a great option, and are in fact what I ride on for most of my singletrack/fireroad excursions. A lot of times though, I find myself wishing for something a little...

    In addition to the durability and delicateness of 10 speed drivetrains already mentioned, I would add that I find CX racing to be one discipline where having a nice narrow progression of gears isn't...

    None of you are racing in AZ, I guess.

    Some of our early season races have temps in the 90s. For most of those, we do handups (I know, not legal). Also, on one course that only had...

    The Cane Creek/Tektro levers are a good visual and ergonomic match to Campy 9 and 10 speed ergos.

    As far as modifying the hood to fit, you may want to give these guys a look before you do that. ...

    I'm a skinny runt (152 lbs), but I'm able to run most 32/35 clinchers down around 35 psi for most off road stuff, and 28 psi for smoother courses that don't have rim dinging features in them.
