It is going to be too difficult to convert my SS Bianchi to a decent crosser (27 inch wheels) so I'm going to convert my OTHER ss/fixie, an early 80's Gitane (700c wheels), to a crosser. It has loads of clearance for the tires and I think that I can even get by using the original brakes-they are the old style calipers with a lot of clearance. Question is, I have CXP 33's on it (36 hole). They should be virtually indestructible. Anyone see any downside to using them?

CXP33's are strong rims and 36 spokes make them strong wheels. You won't have any problems with this setup. Have fun!
