looking for an answer for what pad holder to use for a 26mm and 24mm wide rim?

as the ciamillo site says the low profile one they have is for 23mm

any ideas?

i.e. a link to somewhere selling them?

You may be able to use your normal pad holders on those rims. Simply flip the quick release to the out position. That should clear the rear wheel. It may not clear the front though....

You need the "super low" profile pad shoes. If you flip open the quick release you will put the cam into a less efficient part of the cam lobe. This info is straight from Steve's mouth. The super low profile pad shoes cost about $85. When I changed the cam arms and pad shoes it made a modest improvement in performance on my enve 45 clinchers.

That's not a good fix. It changes the leverage curve / power application. [edit: like the post above says...]

They work at least out to Firecrest with the low profile pad holders without much room to spare.

Hi Ted,

emailed today again to place an order for the super low profile pad holders as I believe that is what I need for the 26mm rim width....

I'd love to be able to get them or something that will make these work well by the 28th of Dec :)

exciting times in WW land!!!

They have the low profile holders and also a new cam designed to work with the new wider rims. Ted posted about it a few months ago. They are not on the site though
