Flo30 & 2015 Cannondale SuperSix Fit Question

Postby NateUT » July 29th, 2015, 6:12 am

I've seen comments about a tight fit with the Flo30 on 2014 and prior Cannondale SuperSix EVOs where nothing larger than a 23mm tire would realistically fit. The 2015 lineup now comes from the factory with 25mm tires standard; would it be safe to assume that I should be able to make a pair of Flo30s and 25mm GP4000II tires work with my 2015 SS EVO 105?

Likely not. I say this because I'm very doubtful that the standard wheels shipping with the 2015 EVO are 24.4mm wide at the brake track. The reason the 25mm tires won't work is because the extra wide rim (24.4 vs the standard 19.0mm) makes a 25mm tire much wider than the standard width rim.

Does that make sense?
