Any supersix owners fitted 25mm tyres?

Just wondered if there is enough clearance for them?

Thanks

  • My colleague at work has them on his and I haven't heard him make any complaints.

    Will depend to a degree on the specific tyre - not all 25m tyres are created equal plus the rim they are mounted on will affect the shape the tyre takes once inflated.
  • Thanks for replies :)

    Am thinking of trying some Conti 4 seasons, as they get good reviews :)

    I have 700x23 all seasons on a caad10 (same geo)....they are definitely larger than 700x23 4000S tyres.

    I also have crudcatcher2's fitted, there is no chance I could fit these with 700x25, so consider if you are contemplating fitting temporary guards for winter.

    I had a sidewall split on a 300 mile all seasons today....disappointed, not sure whether to buy another?

    I wonder if that was from the same batch Cycle Surgery are selling?
