I'd love to get your input into some tire selection exercise I am doing. Can you please specify what tires you use for different activities like:

CX training
CX racing

If you use different tires for different conditions (dry, mud, ..) please specify too. If you also ride/race road I have a separate thread for that.

Many thx

Train: continental cyclocross race clinchers
Race: Challenge Grifo front/Fango rear tubulars

I've also got some ritchey speedmax file tread clinchers but tit's rarely dry enough to warrant using them over the tubulars.

I train/race on Schwalbe Rocket Rons. RoRo's are the bomb!

I have been trying out Clement PDX tubies, but have been constantly washing out on asphalt.
I guess I have gotten used to the Schwalbes.

Train: clincher Racing Ralphs if I'm multi-surface riding. I'd rather wear out a clincher than a tubular...

Train CX only: FMB SSC* RR Grifo Ft

Race: Conti 'Mud' RR Fango Ft

Backup backup wheel: Tufo Dry 32**

M

*The FMB died a horrible death this weekend. Sliced completely thru the tread. Needs replacing
** Haven't actually ridden the Dry 32 yet. Tomorrow... Just glued it on recently

Hi!

i'm using for training:

Challenge Limus open tubular ( most of the time )
Also schwalbe cx comp, for combined road and cross training.

Race:

FMB SSC tubular - for allround conditions.
FMB SSC SPRINT tubular - for dry/icy conditions
FMB super mud! for muddy conditions! i love thoseee they are grippy like velcro! i can really recommend these.
+ FMB durability is really good, i raced 4 seasons on my set of FMB SSC tubulars. That were like 40 cross races.

Greetings,

Hanos
