    650b tires for cx/gravel

    Ive searched around quite a bit but haven't found any tires in the 650b arena that stick out as goood for gravel grind races. Figured someone in the cross world might have an opinion. Looking for something in the 32-38mm range.
    Doing the barry-roubaix in march and need something a little more race inspiring than just running town and country type slicks as I do now on relaxed rides.

    Any thoughts?

    This is a place I would start, I think a light 2.0 tire might be fine for a race the quasi is reasonably light weight.

    In the gravel race/rides I have done I use a Panaracer Pasela 35mm and do fine. You are not going to rail any corners on gravel, I've never had success with it. Sometimes I will run a Race King 2.0 depending on the course and distance.
