    what tires are you racing this fall 2017?

    tubular?, tubes, tubeless? rim width?, pressure and your weight? Expected conditions?
    I've been tubeless on the mtb for years, finally got some cx tubeless compatible rims and mounted up vittoria Cross XL Pro 33s, TIGHT bead on these, wow! -on Neugent 24mm outer rims, I'm just under 170#. It will get wet soon, lots of wet grass and muddy topsoil.
    Not sure what to run for pressure, this seems like a good time to see what everyone else is running for tires pressures etc.
    carry clippers! cut something off the trail every time you ride.

    I'll be running 33mm Schwalbe G ones on my fairly narrow 19mm inner width carbon clincher, set up tubeless. This setup works really good for most of the conditions in So.Cal

    I'm running American Classic MTB tubeless wheels with 21 ID width. Right now for the dry, bumpy conditions I'm using a Specialized 1.8 Renegade front and a Maxxis Rambler 40mm on the rear of my TCX Advanced frameset. In a Wednesday training race this week the setup did well with the exception where the Rambler got a little loose in the rear on an off camber, gravely turn. The Renegade was awesome on the front. These big tires on a cross bike help smooth things out.

    Now I'm wondering if I should try to find an 1.8 Renegade for the rear. I believe my frame has room for it.
