60/90 setup on a Blue Triad EX

Postby Meathead » April 8th, 2015, 8:35 am

I have seen several pictures of FLO wheels on Blue bikes & the Triad SP is called out on the "tight fit" list, but I was wondering if anyone has had any experience in putting a 60/90 set on a Blue Triad EX. Because the EX has an integrated bayonet front end, it differs from the SP. I was curious if anyone knows if that has been an issue. The rear, as far as I can tell, should be the same as the SP.

Here are pics of the Triad EX: http://imgur.com/a/hGZWH

I also know that there is a separate thread for tubes/tires, but I was wondering that if the Triad EX has the same "tight fit" caveat as the SP, if there is a tube/tire recommendation that would be better to avoid any kind of rubbing issues when installing a 60/90 set of FLO wheels.

Thanks for any help & input!

In case anyone searches & has questions about the fit on a Blue Triad EX, I can say they fit perfectly. My LBS had to replace the stock brake pads to a more low profile set of Shimano 105 pads, but that had to do with the angle of how the pads hit the rims. I also put 700x23 tires on them & there is no rubbing or tight fit at all.

Thanks for the update! Can you remind us of your model year?

Take care,
