my supersix 2021 can clear 35mm (size 54 frame with conti GP ubran on reynolds AR29) i would imagine CAAD13 can do the same (?)

for all-road/endruance type raiding, i think 32mm is the sweet spot. i did some long distance rides (300km+per day) on 35mm, i dont think it's necessary (a tyre with more supple casing can offset the slight reduction in air volume). also going from 32 to 35mm the tyre weight jumps quite abit. almost like carrying another spare 25mm on the bike.
Some say pour 10ml water out of your bottle to save that last bit of the weight. Sorry, i go one step further, i tend to the rider off my bikes. :thumbup:
n+1...14 last time i checked, but i lost count :mrgreen:

Thanks for the picture. Seems like plenty even for a slightly larger tyre.

Totally agree on 32 being the sweet spot. Most of the 32s we put on our AllRoads measure to 34. Although definately not on trend, we have found that more rubber the bike really loses a lot of its snappy-ness. Our athletes have won and podium'ed local gravel events on 32/34s.

"Perfect roads exist, but at some point they end. The fun shouldn’t. The Poggio PR21 AllRoad is our quintessential do-it-all bike. With clearance for 32mm tires, thru axles, and disc brakes, our aim isn’t bulky excess, but capable speed. "

32mm tires are so 2018.

guess not, we can build our scandium to accomedate 40s.

Another vote for Mason - I've got a Definition as my trainer / do-everything bike. My GF has a Bokeh which doubles as her road bike as well.

I can't find much on the site about the type of aluminium used - what are the specs?

Question peeps.

I'm 90% Roadie. Not much if any gravel where I live. I did register for Rasputitsa 4/29/23. I currently have a 22' Allez Sprint and was wondering if I ran 650b rims what tire size I could get in there for the race?
I also own 15' Cannondale F4 Lefty. Would putting some Road Shifters & Gravel handle bars be an option?

I'm having a hard time justifying 1500$ for a bike I may not ride alot.

Thanks
