More CX0 Update

The cross tires work well for what I want them to do on the road and bluff trails with one exception.  There is  a lot of glass that has been ground into small bits on the road that make it hard to see.  As a result, I have had 2 flats on the rear in as many days.  The tires are designed well for what they are - off-road higher volume cross tires.  As such, they are not very resistant to glass punctures.

I think going the tubeless route is a must for the roads around here.  Doing so would provide a level of self-sealing for punctures while allowing for lower pressure for the off-road riding.
