My very first fixed gear conversion I had cross tyres on. It was such a comfy ride. I recommend putting the same on the front too.

Cross tyres are heavier so they may feel more sluggish to accelerate but once you get going, they're fine.

Randonneur Cross tires have pretty mild tread to begin with, so as long as they fit, it won't be a big deal.
