As above I've just bought some Reynolds Strike tubeless wheels. I am keen to take advantage of tubeless with a pair of pro ones. Would you go 25mm or 28mm?

Bike is a Aeroad with direct mount brakes, i weigh about 90kg, coming from 23mm tyres

  • 25mm will almost certainly be more aero, in terms of tyre shape meeting with wheel rims.

    You always have the option of 25mm front for some aero with a 28mm rear for comfort. And then in winter if this bike (and tryres) is still getting rides, switch the larger tyre to the front for more traction (albeit rear tyres wear quicker).

    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles

    That might settle that then! I was under the impression the Ultegra direct mount brakes would have clearance, does the seat tube catch?

    Think I might go 25mm.

    I've got 25mm pro-1 on Reynolds assault wheels and they've been very good so far.

    Would you say 28mm would be too big?
