The new (old) bike will be 1x10 (42x12x25). I'm debating on the tire thing. The new Ultegra wheels are tubeless ready but with only one tire choice, Hutchy Bulldogs, so with that in mind, they might find some tubes lingering about their innerds because I'd really like to find some Challenge Griffo's.
Next race looks to be Capital Cross in Topeka followed by the Boulevard Cup. We'll see how much 'cross fitness I can muster in the next two weeks, I've got some catching up to do.
