CX Tire Swap

Filed under: Around the shop,Bike Racing — Andrea @ 2:09 pm

I’m currently in search of UCI-legal (33mm wide or less) CX tires that will set up tubeless on either my Dura Ace or Stan’s Alpha 240 wheels. I currently use Hutchinson Bulldogs, but they’re too wide to take to Master’s Worlds in January. I’ve tried both the Ritchey Speedmax and the Kenda Kommando- neither of which would hold air.

So, instead of going through the expensive process of purchasing and trying tires that may or may not work, I was hoping that some of you, my new/loyal readers, would have some tires you’d be willing to trade for a set of new Speedmax or very lightly used Kenda Small Block 8 tires. I have a bunch of other random tires around the garage as well- I’ll just have to dig around and make a list.

What I’m looking for is anything 33mm wide or smaller that doesn’t appear on the “never works” section of THIS article from CX Magazine. Lightly used is fine (lightly being the operative word here). I’ll pay to ship tires to you, you pay to ship tires to me, and we both save on getting to try out new cross tires without the expense of actually purchasing new cross tires.

If you’re interested, email me- andrea @ brickhouseracing.com or comment below.

  1. We have set up a pair of Specialized Captain Cross 2bliss tires with Stan’s yellow tape on older Dura Ace wheels with no problem. They are supposed to be a 34mm but measured 31.5mm. Unfortunately, we’re not looking to trade any, but maybe the info will help. http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bc/SBCEqProduct.jsp?spid=65021
