Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

So I am almost done with the upgrade to the old 1980 Italian steel beast. Added new BB & old school shimano ultegra cranks all working well. Ordered the 28c tires and cannot wait to hit the trails. I have a lot of old train tracks in my area so a quick 2 miles on the road and BAM! 20 more on the dirt pathway. Looking forward to riding in the messy winter.

I went really cheap CST? cost me $9 each and with shipping I got two tires at my home for $27.00.
They are very soft, wire bead and a beast to get on the rim. I have not used them yet as weather in NWNJ is simply bad.
They look great and I may have room for 30's. If all goes well I will get out this weekend.
Cannot wait to hit the trails.

Do you know what CST tires they are? I have Maxxis tires on my car and would like to go with a pair of CST's for my next bike tire.
