ok... here's what I'm thinking about doing but I'm not sure if it's gonna work so I need all you Psychlo-X riders sagely advice (crazy indeed!) :-)
been getting some snow lately here in PA which keeps me from riding but the roads are not so bad that I figured if I had some decent cross tires I could probably ride without landing on my ass every time I hit a little bit of hardpacked on the road's edge.
so... plain and simple, do I have enough room to run 28mm cross tires (think FMB SSC) on the Compact or am I sol? fwiw I have 27mm Vittoria Pave's on the bike now and there's 'just enough' clearance that I don't worry about it (about 5mm all around).
yeah, I know... get a PX and problem solved, maybe when the economy picks up, so for now humor me with your wisdom.
