Perhaps this was approached from the wrong
angle, if one desires wide tires, perhaps one
should get a 28" MTB steel frame and only have
the gear loaded the same way?

Or 27.5", whatever.

Some people believe, "If a little bit is good, a lot is even
better!"

If you are among them, why stop at a puny runt of a 28" wheel?

OK. Do you have smaller chainrings on that to
compensate for the wheel circumference, like
with the small wheelers, only the other
way around?

How wide a tire do you need?

Anything worth doing, is also worth overdoing.

I don't need especially wide tires. Just not 32
and preferably wider than 35. Shooting from the
holster, I'd say my prefered tire size is
622-40, 622-42, or 622-47.

But this is me just projecting the project
based on my general experience and what
I've read. I never did any randonneuring
whatsoever on any bike!

Stop using the word "randonneur". As for wanting wide tires, which seems to be your only goal. That is easy. With the advent of 29", 700C mountain bikes, there are many wide bike tires for every wheel size. You can get many 26" or 700C bikes that will accommodate 1.9" or 2.1" wide tires. That is 48 and 53 mm wide. I'm guessing there are slightly skinnier 700C tires available too.

Brilliant rim and drivetrain design, but it seems to disprove the "big
wheels/wide tires have less rolling resistance" hypothesis.
