hmmm. the CX appropriate rims on velocity were like 21-24mm wide. 29er blunts were like 35mm wide or something.

re: the OP, any wheels in the $100 a pair range are going to be the same cheap junk that came on your Cirrus and will die the same way. my Globe has those same cheap 1" wide 700c hybrid wheels on it. if/when mine sproing, I'm looking to upgrade to something like cross wheels. I'm running 35m tires now, but if I get my weight down, I'll probably drop to 32 or even 28 so I wanted to be sure I could get away with that range.

^^^ Outside widths.

What I listed were bead widths, or what is generally listed on the rim label.

so... anyone got any experience with Velocity Dyad rims? they seem like the right mix to me for what I'll want once my crappy stockers start to go... basically a touring wheelset for my hybrid.

*WHY* do all these brands like Fulcrum insist on splashing their graphics all over things?!? I don't mind a small tasteful label, but to cover the whole rim in giant letters like its a sponsored race thing

5055 as of yesterday. How about that, I've been over 5000 miles on this bike. That's pretty goddam cool! Anyway, that was 348 miles, not great but not bad. I didn't have much of a chance to ride with the club, so most of those are solo. I'm at 2705, 80 miles ahead of my schedule. I should be at 2625.

Dude, $300 won't break the bank? What do you do for a living? Do you need any help?
That's a pretty reasonably priced wheelset. Ask Gummee about the MSRP on his Zipps.

Interested in learning about lacing/truing? You can buy a rim and spokes pretty cheaply and relace the wheel.

I'm thinking of giving it a shot with my tweaked Shimano rear wheel. What could possibly go wrong?

Guess I'm a candidate for KLR ownership, then!

I've laced up my own rims before (did it on my racing bike). It's not hard - that's probably what I'll end up doing here.

9th in my first CX race and 12th in my second on Sunday. My tires were the weak link both days but I'll put up the full report later when I get more time. Brutal, dirty, wet, muddy fun... and that was just Saturday watching the wimmen's race.

Yea, I got a pair on the Ridley, 32 hole with 14 guage spokes on 105 hubs. I've got 1500 km on em so far .no problems. they seem sturdy enough.I'm a pretty big guy 238#

Their web site says they are touring rims I don't know if i'd use them for that.The LHT has Alex Adventurer rims on it 5000 mi of hard riding and no problems.

Pedaling while cornering

Been watching some race videos filmed at Santos, and I noticed that most (all?) the racers stop pedaling when they go into a turn, keeping the outside foot at the 6 O'Clock position until the turn exit. It looks to me like they could avoid losing speed by pedaling through the turns. Or is that unsafe?

Ever drug your pedals before? Unlike motorcycle foot pegs, they are NOT spring loaded. You can imagine what happens when one digs into terra firma.

Ya, I thought about that, but it doesn't look like their pedals were anywhere close to touching down.

There's not much forgiveness for a miscalculation of distance to the ground though. I've touched down a pedal in a crit and it cost me a top 4 finish since it was on the last turn of the last lap. Just bad judgement in an off-camber turn and I was in the weeds hanging on for dear life at 30mph. Now imagine the same scenario on a MTB trail with immovable objects just waiting inches away from the trailside. You know how tight some of those trails at Santos are. Vortex is a perfect example. Fast, rolling and blind turns.
