Can someone please post me some links to where I can see a good selection of cross tires online for purchase? Also any recomendations to what I need to be running.

** Pref - online stores in North America ...
I am new to cross and will be riding in semi dry to fast courses.

Thanks!

All of those are good tires, the two Hutchinson models are good for semi-dry to fast courses, as are the Schwalbe Fast Freds. Michelin Muds, Panaracer Cinder-X, and Schwalbe Racing Ralphs will be good in all conditions, even if it gets crappy wet.

What tires you run depend on where you live and the type of course.


Tufo tread is a good starting point, if not that great of a tire (too firm.)


One of my favorite tires is a Continental Twister with the outer nibs shortened with diagonal cutters.
Serious delirium.
