Does anyone know if the Scott CR1 SL can take 28mm tyres, on Fulcrum 3 wheels...

    Can't see it. Tight enough with 25s on Fulcrum 6s.

    i'd say no but you'd need to state which brand of tyre as they vary hugely in real world widths
    Rule #5 // Harden The censored Up.
    Rule #9 // If you are out riding in bad weather, it means you are a badass. Period.
    Rule #12 // The correct number of bikes to own is n+1.
    Rule #42 // A bike race shall never be preceded with a swim and/or followed by a run.

    I'd be hugely surprised - assuming this is the venerable 2012 model, which I surmise is there the Westy bit comes in?

    I cautiously run 25mm GP5000s on mine, and they measure up small, 24mm with callipers (On Mavic Ksyrium wheels), and there is a touch of clearance at the rear.
    I also put some protective frame tape around where it would hit the frame should the fairy visit, or the wheel not seat squarely in the dropouts - not an issue mine has had fortunately.

    If you are in a position to buy one to try, you can always shunt it to the front should it not fit - I used to run 25mm GP4000 on the front, and a 23mm on the rear.
