I am looking for wider cyclocross tires.....700x40 or wider. What are some good choices that are still pretty light weight? Some sweet MTB trails have been built around my house. I don't own a MTB bike anymore, so need to use my cross bike for the trails. Just want a bigger volume tire with some grip(no semi-slicks) for trails that won't flat as easy. I might run them tubeless too. also.....another possibility would be a thinner 29er tire that would fit on a cross bike
to go faster....just pedal harder!

Bontrager 29-0 Team Issue might be a good option

check the ritchey 700x 40 cross tires, they are good, the bontrager team issue ( also good) are way too wide for most cross bikes

I have some new Continental Twister Pro 700x42mm - (28 x 1.6)". These are highly regarded light race tires for a 29er or cyclocross rider. I did mount these tires to go on my touring bike but they would not fit in the frame so I took them right off and put them back in the boxes. If you have some interest in these let me know.
2 Serotta's, 1 Spectrum, 1 Van Dessel, 1 Parlee & 1 Carl Strong, & 1 Titus.

sure...pm me your best price shipped for the pair...I am at zip 41011. Are they actually 42 wide? Some tires are much thinner than listed.
