Has anyone run flows with fairly skinny tires? I want to give CX a shot, with what I have in my garage, before spending more money on different wheels or bikes. I plan on using them on my normal steel 29er hardtail for a few local races, therefore no 34c width rule.
Will something like this be burp prone or corner poorly with such a wide rim? 40c is fat for a cx tire, bit 3/4" less than any tire I have ever had on Flows. My two worries are an overly "square" profile and that they will transmit too much force to the bead and burp too much.
Is there any reason not to run these tubeless? Has anyone had a similar setup?
