Do someone have good pics of the frame clearance whith modern 25mm tyres fitted on also modern wider rims? That frameset is already a few years old, and clearance doesn't seem that great. GVA rode on 25mm G+ tubulars fitted to the new Shimano tubular wheels during the spring classics. but these tubs are supposed to be 'real' 25 mm, not like the open tubular version, or other wide 25mm tyre (Conti, Michelin, Schwalbe,...) I could have a great deal on a 2th hand one, but would like to clarify this item first. The bike is sold with 23mm tyres, and of course, plenty of clearance with those...

I can't provide photos off hand but with Sworks Turbo tyes at 26mm and Zipp NSWS 404s there is still plenty of clearance.

I have the 2015 updated model... I am not sure if previous iterations have the same level of clearance.
