    Tire Clearance on a Cannondale CAAD X 5?

    After running Fat Franks on my commuter for a while I now realize i've been bitten by the 'fat tire' bug. I'd like to run something like the Bruce Gordon Rock N'Road 700x43's on my CAAD X 5, but i'm not sure if they'd fit, it seems like it might be close in the rear. I'm going to do some fire road riding in the near future and want something with a bit more volume/tread.

    Anyone else with a CAADX have a good handle on the absolute max tire size?

    Anyone have any other slightly smaller cros tire recommendations, maybe 700x40 or so?

    Did you ever find a good size and if so, what did you go with?
    Thx VP
