- Are crossers still quick on the road ?
With cross tyres they are as above a bit slower, but not as much as a mtb.
But why would you commute on a canal bank and quiet roads on cross tyres? You could use slicks or a semi slick.
I use some cheap Michelin City Tyres £10 each and my cross bike is faster than my old road bikePosted 4 years agonbtMember
I use Schwalbe Marathon Plus on my CX for a road / towpath / gravel lanes / occasional singletrack commute. A 6 mile road commute takes 25 minutes on a CX, 40 on an SS MTB (32:16, 26″ wheels, yes I know that 25 mintues for 6 miles is not fast but I’m not a racer, I just use the CX so I can go off road on the way home)Posted 4 years ago
