Tyre & Brake Help Please(5 posts)

Tyre & Brake Help PleaseStevieP

Just ordered a new Ridley Crossbow frame. I am a CX virgin so I would appreciate some help on tyre & brake selection. I don't want to spend heaps but equally I dont want something that looks horrible and is heavy.

What tyres & brakes are you running? Do you recommend them?

Paul Neo Retros and Kenda Kwiks (28mm, 26 mm actual) Gotta love the Pauls for their V brake pad adjustablility. And my real tires are Tufo tubulars. I'm just trying out the semi-slick concept for the first time.

spooky and tufo's are the way to go....great power, less money than Pauls and the Tufos by far are the best cx tub or tub/clincher on the market

good luck
