Definitely.

My road rides tend to involve linking up Pinwall, Twycros, Sheepy Magma, Wellsborough, Market Bosworth, Measham etc. There are some lovely villages out that way, with some nice pubs too (although I've not visited any yet because I ride solo...I'm not originally from Tamworth so lost my riding buddies when I moved here).

Let me know when you're next out. I'm planning a bit of a road session on Monday morning...I'm not that quick on the road bike bit do enjoy it.

Not here Sunday, I'm in Oxford seeing family (but am that frustrated with the weather that the road bike is coming with me....I need to get out after this week). Will be out Monday though and the forecast is half descent.

Need to be careful on road wheel tubeless. You need to use a tubeless specific tyre and best use tubeless ready rim. I have run some tubeless hutchinson tyres on old mavic (non-tubeless specific rims), but because of the higher pressures involved on road bikes you're best to have all tubeless specific equipment.

I have got non-tubeless tyres and rims to work on cross, but it was a bit of a faff.
