Hi,
Does anyone run Conti GP 4000 II in 28mm on a Trek Emonda SLR?
If yes, what is the clearance like?
Any pics? (fork, stays, brakes).

Don't know if this is helpful: I run Vittoria Open Pave 28mms on Ultegra 6800 wheels in my Emonda SL during the winter and there's ample clearance. Ultegra brakes. I'm afraid I don't have any pictures ready to upload though.

Thanks but different bike and different tire-
Looking for experience with exact combo of Emonda SLR and GP 4000 II 700x28mm.

It'll fit with room to spare. Buddy has mounted challenge Paris Roubaix on wide rims that balloon out to 30mm.

SL is pretty much the same bike, different fork but the direct mount fork on the SLR will have even more space.

On current rims, the GP4000s II 28 will be 31mm wide and won't fit many caliper brakes, let alone frames.

GP4000s II 25's seem to barely fit w enve 3.4 and DA 9000 direct mount brakes.(two front)
I would also be interested to see if 28's fit, however 25's have been fine w me.
