thought I'd stay within this old thread-
does anyone run the racing ralph or speed kings on the road regularly? I'm thinking about running my current road bike (old Kili mag mtb frame with rigid fork) as a kind of 'cross' bike as I do sometimes do a bit of off road on it with the current slicks (only on dry, flat track) but need more grip; however, it'll prob still be doing 75% road, so will need good rolling speed and not rip up too quickly!
I realise it's going to be a trade off, but if i'm going to do it it may as well be fairly good off road so I can take it being a bit more sluggish on the road.
any other recommendations welcome, thanks!
