One thought to consider is the relative difficulty of changing a flat with a larger tire. I was running 28C's tires on my Wabi Lightening, and learned that the tire had to be partially deflated to slide between the brake calipers. This isn't a problem if you're in the comfy environment of your home bike shop where you can release the brake cable, but a different matter if you're doing a roadside flat repair on a cold night. Changing the rear tire on a fixie is complex enough, leading me to drop back to a 25C's.
