Re: new Continental GP 5000

I'm worried that they'll balloon and go wider than the rim killing my aero benefits. What is your CdA? I have no idea but I'm not sure that will change the aero nature of my wheel? I think the point being made is that unless 'aero benefits' are somehow critical to your riding (ie in terms of compet...
