Would I be an idiot to put cross tires on my 66mm deep Reynolds SDV66 carbon tubulars?  I know guys race cross on the EDGE 68's, which is the only reason I'm considering doing this, but my fear is I'm a 175lb guy and these have 16 spokes up front and 20 in the rear (not exactly the "stoutest" build).  They're stiff as hell and I love them for crits, which is the reason I bought them, but if they could do double duty that would be cool.  Let me know what you guys think.

I think they'd be sweet, as long as there's not weight limit on them.  Also depends on how smooth you are.  If your wheels come out of true frequently, you may want to think twice.  But the rule I follow is don't race what you can't afford to replace...
