I would like to take part in three local cyclocross races in the coming weeks but have a bike dilemma:
Should I convert my track frame to a new fork and put one cantilever brake on it and change the tyres, or change the tyres on my Kona road bike (I checked to be sure that there is enough clearance for cross tyres) and race with road bike style calipers but increase the calipers clearance to the rims? At the moment putting cross tyres on my road bike is the cheapest but no one uses calipers so I assume it's a stupid idea. But is converting the track bike silly too? All races are flat, btw.
