The new Ritchey WCS Shield cyclocross tire comes in at a true 700×35 size, for those of you (most of you) who aren’t concerned with such trivialities as UCI rules and regulations. Also available in a Comp version. Prices and weights are 374g / $60 and 500g / $30 respectively.
The WCS has a dual compound with a folding bead. The Comp is single compound with a wire bead. Shipping now. We’re got a set in for review, too.
Also on display was his first 650B bike, built before the first 26″ clunkers that ushered in the mountain bike phenomenon. Click through for pics…
