Cyclocross Tubies

Took the Hugga Hodala with new hoops out yesterday and was amazed at the difference cyclocross tubies make. I should know this from the road yes, but still it was an Episode of Glee ride.

I was giddy afterwards singing an a cappella version of Van Halen’s Jump because the bike lost five pounds and the ride changed from “occasionally harsh, choppy, abrupt” to like “pedaling over a Tempurpedic mattress.”

Our new one cross tip to rule them all is

Get the best tubies you can afford.

This wheelset cost us about $500.00.

When Mark V gets back from Taiwan, we’ll try Hutchinson Tubless on the geared Redline and see how those ride too.
