Max tire width on an '03 Burley Tosa?
Just wondering if anyone knows the max tire width (700) that can fit on a 2003 Burley Tosa road tandem?
I believe the rim is the Weinmann DPX

If so, with an interior rim bead width of 13.4mm, 28mm would be the conventional reading of the tables on Sheldon Brown's web site: http://www.sheldonbrown.com/tire_sizing.html#width

You mean the Belgians are now in China too? Yiiikes!
Weinmann left Belgium for the US years back and, yes, I too was surprised to see the moniker was now the property of a Chinese manfucturing company:

I'm just glad our Tosa didn't come with the DP-18's pictured up there--I'd be trying to figure out how to remove the "Ultimate Power" decals without hurting the finish
For future reference:
