Tire rubbing on draft box Trek Speed concept 7

Postby bhurley » August 25th, 2017, 6:44 am

I have 25C Continental 4000 II's on Flo 60's on my Trek Speed concept 7 and they are rubbing on the draft box. I am going to try 23C in the rear and 25C in the front. Do you see any issues with that set up?

Thanks in advance Bill

It sounds like you have the first generation draft box. It is my understanding that the first gen draft box has rubbing issues with tires over 23mm in size. Trek has since upgraded the draft box to help prevent this issue. If you still have the rubbing issue with the 23mm tires, I'd suggest talking to your Trek dealer to see if you can get an updated draft box.

I hope that helps,
