Hi

I plan to ride the Paris Roubaix sportive and wanted to change the tyre size on my bike, I currently run 23c Schwalbe Ones (clincher) and like the tyre, the frame is a 54cm 2014 Evo Hi-Mod.

I do not have any other sized tyres to try, hence the question. would like to go as big as possible to reduce the risk of puncturing - was hoping for around a 27c. has anyone tried this?

thanks

david

I've got Continental Competitions 25c tubulars that seem like 26-27c when fully inflated. There's still plenty of clearance left. Depending on which tire you have, sometimes they inflate to a bigger size than what's written on the box. Michelin Pro4 clinchers I used to run on 23c inflated to like 24.5c. I'm on Ultegra 6800 calipers.

A lot a variation in rear clearance on Hi-Mod Evos. My frame could fit a an actual 25 but with little room to spare. My buddy's Black Inc can barely clear a 23 as 24s rub the NDS chainstay.

Davidevo9000, which wheelset will you be using?

I am using the shimano RS81 C24 wheelset. Which tyres tend to come up close to the advertised width? I've only used schwalbe and continental 23's in the past but have never measured them as I hadn't considered trying any larger

I wouldn't risk going past 25mm on my Hi-Mod... try borrowing a friends set of 27s and see what happens, it might work.

Conti comps measure up at exactly 25mm inflated.
