I'm running Velocity A23 with tires up to 40mm wide with great results. I also have a HED Ardennes Wheelset and would run up to a 40mm wide tire on those also, but haven't. I'm running up to 50mm wide on a Velocity Dyad which is heavier and wider than an A23 but lighter than a Mavic A719.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
