smaller size may have more clearance in the rear especially bike with flare around rear tire, simply because of steeper seat tube angle of the smaller frame. But that is not certain.

For all around wheels, the CLX50 aren´t too tall?

I used the 64's year round for the past year or so. So the 50's to me feel great, and light. They are the best all around wheel in the Roval line. I've yet to ride the 32's, but I'm sure they feel fast. The more I ride, the more I realize aero>weight to a staggering degree. The new Tarmac is just a great balance of the two. I'll likely replace my 15 Venge with one, but I won't give up my ViAS for one.

I can't respond to your PM as I've been lurking for too long without enough posts, but I probably need the regular version not the direct mount. (still deciding on a frame to replace my now sold Cervelo P3)

If you go the other way. I'll sell you my standard mount EE brakes off my 15 Venge, and it will prompt me into buying a new Tarmac.

The zero offset post for this bike isn't available yet to the masses. There is one coming though.

I ride 60's as all around wheels and don't find them too tall. I think it really comes down to the rider, the normal wind conditions in the areas and how heavy the rider is. If you're 120 pounds, and the area is windy, 50's will probably be a handful.

Looks good!

Why did you choose the Fulcrum Racing Speed 40 Clincher?
(over the Roval CLX50 etc...)

OK. Got the answer from your post in another forum.
You were happy with your Fulcrum and kept these.
