I'm thinking about getting a Crosshairs for commuting, desert exploring, and light touring. I have some canti breaks along with old campy daytona components off an old road bike that I hope to use. I also have a set of Mavic Ksyeriums off my old road bike and wondered if they would fit the Crosshairs. Anyone know?

Yes, that is what I like about the Crosshairs. It has 130mm rear spacing which means your wheelset will fit. Some other cyclocross bikes have 135mm rear spacing which means you have to get a mountain bike hub.

I run Velomax Circuits on my Crosshairs.

I run both 135 MTB hubs and 130mm road hubs on mine without any problems

That's the philosophy behind the CrossHairs. With road wheels (i.e. 23C tires), it handles like a road bike. Yet it has the clearance to fit the bigger tires. The bigger tires slow down the steering, but that's what you want when hitting the trails or a CX race course.
