The cross tires will go through a lot, but they can cut, puncture, and pinch-flat on the rocks and gravel. The faster we go, the more tire problems we get. So, I would say it depends on your riding style and the terrain. If it works well on a single bike with cross tires, it won't be that much different on a tandem.
Would 29" MTB tires fit on the Cannondale? Just a thought.
The frame will take a lot of beating. But road bike gearing is too high for our off-road riding.
We recently bought a tandem with 26" wheels so we can switch between road wheels and MTB wheels.
