thank you all for all the informative info!

also got confirmation back from Reynolds directly:

****************************************************

Thank you for the email, you can run 23mm tires not problem. We recommend running 23 or 25mm for ideal performance.

Have a great day

AddictR1 as you will be putting these on your BMC TMR02 I would recommend going on the wider side with lower air pressure. Ride quality / comfort was the only complaint for these frames, everywhere else they scored just as high as the latest and greatest aero frames.

I use Zipp Tangente SL Speed Tubular in 27c at 80-85 pis on Zipp 404s on my BMC TMR01. They are one of the fastest tires you can get, light weight, very durable and super smooth. I get them on ebay for $60 - $70, you can see the below reviews and test......

thanks Karl. as for the comfort side.. i actually enjoy riding on my TMR02. i find it just as comfortable as my AddictR1. as for tubular tires.. i already ordered the Veloflex carbon in 23mm. seems to be very highly regarded as a fast set of tires. i'll give those a try first and see and will keep the zipps in mind for next round. :)
