Has anyone seen a 700x25c cyclocross tire? My roadie will be seeing some off roadie while we tour yosemite. Thanks.

Can't say that I have, but a decent urban tire, such as the Panaracer Pasela, should be sufficient on dusty or packed gravel trails. For loose gravel/rocky or soft surfaces, you're just really gonna want something with more volume.

I'd certainly want more volume if the need arises. I think a 700x28 would fit. Any suggestions?

It has a wire bead, but maybe this--in a 28mm:

I haven't seen any cyclocross tires thinner than 30mm.

Oooooh, just saw this in 25mm:

Many of the Tufo cross tires come in 28.

Kenda Kwick is labeled 30, but it's not much more than 28. I was able to fit it (barely) under Tiagra calipers on my old Trek 660. FWIW, they do great on dry hard-pack, but pick up way too much mud to use when wet.

Vittoria Randonneur Cross Pro comes in a 28mm. I don't know if the people here would consider it a "cross" tyre, but since you're actually talking about touring, it's probably the right tyre - if maybe heavy for you. I have a 32mm and 35mm.
