Wanted to Buy: Cyclocross Tires

Post by jenna » Tue Aug 13, 2019 10:03 pm

Looking to buy a pair of (likely 35x700?) cyclocross tires for my Kona Jake.

Let me know what you have, the price, & any other info that might be helpful - Can email jennapeters4@gmail.com if that's easier for you

[I donated my original tires (& switched to thinner road tires) because I thought I'd never do cyclocross, but I've slowly changed my mind!]

Thanks

Welcome back to the dirt Jenna! As a novice initiate myself, I have little to offer by way of advice other than: go big. Most are riding 38+ that make my 33s look skinny. The local races don't enforce any tire size limits and the evidence points to fat tires being faster on trail as well as kinder to your body and bike. For more info, I suggest that you post this in the cyclocross forum. You'll get some opinions on tires but will need to put up with some giffy nonsense. Also, do consider taking a ride with these maniacs. I started in the spring and it's a hoot.

Thanks Mark!

Bought a used pair & so am good now!

Several of us in the women's tripleshot spring clinic realize we owned cyclocross bikes so are gonna test them out! :)

Appreciate the tips!
