    Shoes for a singlecross?

    I recently acquired a specialized single cross and love it minus the wheels. I ride them now with a begrudging gratitude but dream of the day they let me down so i may burn them with fire.
    So what should replace them? The bike is used as my car so i dont care if they weigh 1/100000th of a gram more. I want a masochistic wheel set that will submit to my daily abuse, yet have an economic flair.

    Try the CX forum. Only bikes you can acceptably ride with baggy shorts on are spoken of here.

    No insecurities here, Bro. My ass and quads looks smoking in lycra.

    You have a Singlecross. It is a CX bike. It has 120mm rear hub spacing.

    This is a MTB forum. All the bikes discussed here have 135mm rear hub spacing.

    Your asking for guidance for wheels for a quasi road bike.

    Go to the CX forum.

    Well, this thread is the best I've ever read.

    I'd just shop craiggers, or look for something with CR-18.
