This. I built up a wheelset this year with WI's updated T11's and couldn't be happier. Quality was top notch. WI industry isn't the size of DT Swiss or even King, so replacement parts can take longer from these smaller companies.

I hit the trail for the first time today since I got hurt. My stock tires have no traction on roots, and I'm damn slow. Must have let like 10 people pass me by.

Tires--- I know that is a crazy subject. I picked up a used road bike for greenway riding and it needs tires and tubes. Are there really any differences? size is 700x25. I am putting up my mountain bike for the greenway stuff finally.

Right now in the lead is the michelin pro 4 endurance.

Paved, gravel or dirt. 25c great on old or bad pavement. Gravel you want 45c to float instead of sinking in. Dirt somewhere between 32-38c. The rougher the dirt is, the bigger the tire you want.

Went to a CX race yesterday, super disappointed. After seeing picks from friends on Facebook and watching youtube videos I was pretty stoked. Was going to watch this first one then go for last place in the next. The track was boring as ****. It had one small gravel road maybe 300ft long, 20ft long hard pack sand, then all flat grass and pavement. The sand section was right on the river and had mud, sand, small rocks 2x2", a nice grass drop in, etc. they skipped it all, like how easy can we make this course moto. Oh and I was the only one drinking beer...fail. No pics cause guys in spandex on flat grass is gay.

On the flip side I went to a rallyx event Saturday and it had elevation, mud, gravel, hard pack, berms, whoops, air . I think I would like any form of racing were the course designer has some imagination. Maybe I'll trek down to Dallas at some point and run with Trey :(

Not impressed Arkansas Cyclocross

I would let the event promoter and course designer know. Back in the late 90's when cross was first getting started here in SoCal, I was also disappointed in the local promoter's unimaginative course design and voiced it. I ended up doing many of the course designs. I came up with the some crazy ****. Takes the urban BMX's riders eye (when I was a kid) to see berm shots, jumps, giant slaloms, pump rollers, sand pits and other fun stuff.

Right?! I could have made a course that was legendary at the same exact spot. You know the course sucks when you stop paying attention to the racing and are scoping out sweet features that were missed.

You can have fun with the Dallas CX crew just listening the announcer, who goes by "Chaos Worldwide".

This weekend's CX race is "Colonel's Double-'Cross Weekend, the return of the Escalera Loco! Presented by Colonel's Bikes, Manly Bulge Bicycle Club".

Wednesday night's course has always been fun, at least two sets of hurdles, through the little drainage ditch twice or more, up the levee twice or more(at least once on foot), a small rave (contrasting music, lights, drunken debouchery) on the top of the levee with hand-ups, Trail LED brings a keg every week and sits in the middle of the course.

Mainly paved Greenway. Very little gravel.

Slicks + gravel = crash. Even for an experienced rider. If it's just a fitness bike for relaxed riding, I'd suggest a 38c with minimal tread in center and some small ***** on the sides of the tread for the occasional gravel or dirt. They'll roll fast and smooth enough on pavement.

Like this http://amzn.com/B0071TXFXC

or this more pavement oriented option http://amzn.com/B007QMVO4Q

Too much off-road talk up in here.

Trying to decide if I want to build up a set of fast tubular wheels. Test fit an old set of 38mm Zipp 303's tonight - just a little too shallow. Will probably end up with something in the 50mm-ish range. I'm thinking black hubs and silver CX-Rays. 1300g to 1400g range, depending on the rim choice.
