Hokeypokey, I am planning on running the Bonty 1.8's (already bought though I don't even have the frame yet) on my Cross Check. They are a sweet tire and apparently the limit of what the CC will take. Right in the middle of your range (45c) so you might want to check them out. I've heard a lot of good things.hokeypokey3 said:I thought I would join too! Niner MCR w/ midges. Only have about 10 rides on this with minor fit tinkering with stem and stack height every couple of rides. I believe the fit is right on for my intended use and terrain. Very fun to ride!
After the sb8's wear out I plan on going to a smaller tire. CX or smaller XC with some cornering tread. Something in the 42-48mm range. I will keep lurking on the forums to help choose.
