I have raced CX for the past 2 years in NC so we usually have hardpack courses with the occational "true" cyclocross weather of rain and mud. I have been using Ritchey Speedmax 700x32.

Is there any benefit to going to a 35 tire? I thought maybe it would take out some of the constant hardpack vibration that seems to make my hands numb and beat me around. I change hand position to help with the hand numbness.

bigger tire

more volume, can run a tad less pressure so there will be some 'relief'

the cost?
weight (rotational as well)
bigger contact patch (slower on hard pack)
