Meaty tires on a cross bike will provide absorption of road surfaces.

I haven't put road tires on my cross bike yet.... to see if there is a difference.

my CAADX-Tiagra is a little heavier than my Spec Secteur.

Reviving an older thread...

I did put road tires on my CAADX... though I used the existing Alpha 400 wheelset (with DT Comp spokes & Shimano 105 hubs), and swapped my tires from my road bike (with Mavic Kysrium Elite) over (Conti Grand Prix 4-season)....

the ride is nice and mellow. Probably from the SAVE technology on the chain stay... and the also the little extra volume Stan's BST technology provides...

but... I can feel the extra weight of the wheelset though...
