Wider wheels...

I was wondering if anyone in the Toronto area knew of any places I could acquire larger, knobby tires for my road bike. I was thinking a set of cyclocross tires, but I'm not sure of where I could find tires like those at 700 x 25... perhaps 700 x 28? I ride a Fuji Ace, if that helps with issues of clearance...

Any help would be appreciated!

I think Urbane cyclist may have some, I was there last weekend. MEC doesn't.

I'll check out Urbane Cylist, thanks... MEC definitely doesn't have them.

Actually, do you want to tell me where Urbane Cyclist is... the weather isn't exactly allowing for me to explore the downtown core and find it...

Thanks!
