    cyclocross tires on tandem

    Hi,

    We have a KHS Tamania Milano with 700 X 28C tires and V Brakes.The bike is about 5 years old. I'm thinking of riding the C&O Canal and was wondering if changing the tires to 700 X34C cyclocross tires would work for the tow path. It looks like I have plenty of clearance as far as the brakes go.

    Has anyone tried this?

    I've ridden some pretty rough trails and dirt roads on a road tandem with mostly slick 35c tires. I would think a pair of 34c cyclocross tires would run well on a tow path if your frame has the clearance.
