Road tires on a cross bike - yay or nay?
In the ongoing effort to get off the mountain bike for a while and hit the paved road, I've decided to set my sights on a new cyclocross bike (possibly Specialized '07 Tricross Expert double).
For rides I knew I would be on 100% road, would it be fitting to tear off the 36's and toss on a pair of normal 25-27 pure road tires? The rims should be able to handle a smaller tire/fit, correct? Just looking for increased speed and efficiency... don't want to be the 'slow guy' on the cross bike when I go riding with my road bike buddies...
