I really want a set of carbon tubs bacause a) I think they look great and b) I can convince myself I need them for racing.

So then, do I get a set of Bora Ones, which I can get at trade through m'team but are still eye wateringly expensive.

Sell the current CX bike, and also get these for the road bike:

    The latest CT 45 are excellent value for money. Gigantex wide rims, very decent Chosen hubs and a solid build quality... it hurts to say that of a mega retailer, but they have done a very good job with these

    Interesting. While I desperately want a set of Boras, I just can't justify it.

    Will ring PX and see if they will do a bundle deal.

  • Get yourself the PX tubs, ride them for a while and if you think you can't live without them get the Boras at a later date. Buying tubular tyres is not a cheap hobby :)
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles
