I have similar wheels and am contemplating running 25's for winter. I realize this sort of question goes around a bit but are you able to compare 23's and 25's on these rims?


I've run 23mm tyres on these rims (not these exact wheels) before. Maxxis Radiale 23c with Michelin Latex tubes at 90psi front and 95psi rear. For 25mm tyres these wider rims are exceptional. I'm 100kg and run these tyres at 85psi front and 90psi rear and there is no flopping around when cornering hard. Comfort wise I'm not sure as the Specialized Roubaix tyres are 120tpi where as the Radiale is meant to be even better than a 320tpi tyre thanks to it's construction. Whether or not this is the case I'm not sure but I did feel the Radiale set up was smooth. I changed to those tyres and the A23 rims at the same time though so it's not an accurate review of either product. Some 320tpi Vittoria Pave 24mm clinchers would be exceptionally smooth and I think I'll most likely get a pair when these wear out. If only they did them in just black... I wish Veloflex made open versions of the Roubaix or Arenberg.

@yrodriguez317

Your CAAD 10 looks bad ass with those deep wheels! If my 9 cracks that's the colour option I want to replace it with.


Radiales suck and TPI count doesn't matter in regards to the type of tire a Specialized Roubaix is. Yes, the casing is a bit less supple, but they rely more on the durometer of the rubber to create comfort.

I've ridden 23mm rims for 2 years, every tire type and width. I believe that even though the contact patch is supposedly optimized for 23s, 25s feel a bit more surefooted and comfortable with them, however, they seem to bubble beyond the labeled dimension. My Roubaixs and 25mm Pro 3's were both around 27-27.5 when calipered.

First: Wow. Looks great!

Second: i have a couple weird questions for you. What kind of spacer is that (brand), and what kind of bar ends are those.

third: Love it!

Thanks!

The spacers are Chris King Pink. However I find the cheapy Ebay spacers will do the same thing. The bar ends come with the Enve Compact bar and are attached.

Thank you very much for the info. With my bike, i feel like it is, now, a great canvas. it definitely needs some color. I plan to start small with a spacer or some fun skewers. I like what you have done with yours.

I just got a 52cm CAAD 10 and decided its too big for me. I'm 5'6" and the top tube measurement is the same as my current bike (Orbea Aqua 51cm), but it just feels a lot bigger. Do you guys think a 50cm would fit better? If there is anyone that wants to trade their 50cm for their 52cm let me know. I have the white one with the black decals, can't tell the difference between a new frame besides a barely visible scuff from cable rub.

The weight is a little over 7 kg. Not my main concern for racing in the flat Netherlands. We have to buy our own timing chip, so this is mine.

Wow that is a sick team color CAAD10. I have the 10-5 in the same color. Slowly upgrading it. Eventually will be similar but I think I am going to go with Zipp SC SL bars/stem/seatpost. Really want to get the hollowgrams but without power.

I have a real issue with how ugly my top cap is. The fsa expander is heavy and ugly, what options do we have that will keep our steerers safe?

I use the Specialized one on mine. You can use any top cap you want with it.
