Smallest Tire on a old Mavic x823?

I acquired some old Mavic x823's (not the newer EX823) that I'm looking to convert to commuter duty. Can I downsize to 2.1's on these guys?

shouldn't be a problem. I wouldn't try anything smaller than maybe a 1.75 on them. Narrow tires can be a real pain to mount on wider rims. But the 2.1 should be no problem.

Good Dirt
Thanks, Squash. I read the tire specs for the new 823s @ 2.3-3.0" and got a little worried.
