Chris - if the frameset clearance is not an issue, is there any reason you would NOT recommend 28mm tires on a set of FLO CC's? I have a 45/60 combo running 23mm but am looking to buy a new frame and keep my wheels, but would love to ride 28's on them. I'm not as concerned about aero as much as reliability and comfort.

The blog post on tire selection is very interesting. I'm curious what the recommended tubeless tires would be.

Which?

Continental doesn't make road tubeless.
Specialized turbo cotton - not tubeless.
Zipp tangente - not tubeless.
Specialized s-works turbo - comes in regular and tubeless.
Bontrager R4 - several different models, unclear.
Schwalbe One - comes in regular and tubeless.
Hutchinson Atom - comes in different models, unclear.
Felt TTR1 - not tubeless

Plus 3 tires without CRR data.

Furthermore, it's not clear whether any of those tires were setup tubeless for the Crr portion of the test. If you can't be bothered to answer a very simple question from a potential customer, maybe you should hire someone to do it for you.

I'm curious if your recommendation on tire size 23 vs 25 has changed in light of the study:

For tubeless tires.

I have been using the new Bontrager R3 Tubless tires (Model 508443) the size I am using is 700x26c they also make a 700x24c.

They worked great all last year, and I plan on using them this year also.
