Thanks Clifford. Your input in the thread was very helpful, as I also just purchased the ChrisCross rims and Crosswolf tires. Curious what your impressions are on the WTB pairing (I saw you said you haven't tried them with other tires yet) as far as low pressure performance, burping issues, ease of set-up, etc. I'm a 175lb rider that is pretty light on my equipment.
Also curious if based on your experience so far most of the other tubeless tire offers will be "plug and play" and if you feel 1 brand might be a better match for the rims compared to the others. The CrossWolf looks like a loose conditions/mud tire to me, so I am looking for a mixed conditions all-around tire to also use on these rims. Thinking about the Kenda Happy Medium or Slant Six or the Specialized Tracer or Captain CX.
This is my first leap into tubeless, so I am a bit nervous about getting it to work the way I am hoping/envisioning it to work.
Thanks for your time and insights.
I appreciate the feedback
I've been riding Mavisc Askium which are 18 & 20 spokes I haven't had to true them & this is my second year of cross.
I'm bidding on ebay for a Pair of Mavic Krsyrium SSCs & if that deosn't work out-I'll probably go for the Grammas
A couple years ago you reviewed Grammo Tubolari CX Tubular wheels. I'm thinking of getting a pair. In the article you mentioned a follow up report.
Do you have any more observations than from your Oct 09 article?
Although I raced tubulars on the road for years, this would be my first set of cross tubulars. I weigh about 205 and tend to be hard on my wheels. I've been riding/racing cross on Mavic Askiums & amvery pleased with them, but looking to make the step up to tubulars
Thanks for any insight.
I wonder what the collection would be if I added the question "bikes ever owned". I'd be embarrassed with my list for sure. Fathom a guess of how many that would be? I've got almost 30 years too but fortunately the first 10 were whatever my parents got cheap...
