Cross tubulars for New England terrain?
So I'm building up a set off tubular wheels to play with off-road. I'll be using them to ride on unpaved roads but am also entertaining the idea of trying cross racing. I figure anything wide will work for the playing off-road part, so I'm choosing a tire based on what would be best on your typical new england cross race. I assume they would mostly be moist but not too muddy, and with lots of grass and roots.
I think that I've narrowed the tires down to the Challenge Grifo or Fango (I have a pair of Challenge clinchers that have really impressed me). Which would you choose? Does it really matter all that much? 32c or 34c?
