I have a fuji newest 3 and want to do cx really bad. I have 700x25 on there now and can go to 26. are there any 700x25 or 26 cross tires?

okay. now that I figured out in 700x25 the 25 is milimeters I should have enough clearence to run a 30. since I have 1/2 a cm on each side that means 1 cm total so I could fit 35's if I wished.

Remember to check for clearance on top of the tire as well. Tires have a round profile so a wider tire will also be taller... I really doubt you can fit 30s or 35s under those brake calipers.
Cyclocross bikes have cantilever brakes and they can run wider/taller tires and not have the brakes get clogged by mud like caliper brakes will do as the muddy tire runs right under the caliper.

Good point. My freind says he has an extra set and will let me try them and see if they fit. he says they will definatly fit but idk. I didnt know wider meant taller.
