Hello

Anyone that as a Thm Scapula F fork as tried to fit wide rims with 27mm brake tracks... By trimming the brake pads...
Maximum brake tracks in manual is 23mm, so i need to trimm 2mm to each brake pad.

Rims would be ENVE SES 4.5

I had a Storck 0.6 with that fork and Enve 3.4's. Trimming was a real pain as then the pads didn't last that long.

The brakes didn't have that much power either when you effectively lost that first 2mm of stroke and leverage.

My suggestion would be that if you haven't bough the ENVE's yet - Don't with this fork. Lightweights would look fantastic on it and work a lot better, or get something else that is narrow.

Xentis would work as well - or old style Bora's if you are running Campy

Thanks for your advice...
Already have lightweight Meilenstein tubular, and they have been great. And breaking is good... I were looking for an other set of wheels. Really love the fork and don't plan on changing it.

Thanks

Awesome! Just stick with the Lightweights.

The fork is great - I miswrote my reply - you lose the last bit of stroke in the brakes by going wide where the bulk of the power is generated.
