    Wheels get out of true laterally, so you'll be fine.

Also tire rub will quickly eat through paint and clear coat into the carbon. I think im to big of a pansy to leave mine like that.
    I'm not worried about it.

    This.

    There's more room on the sides than there is on top. We also have different forks.

    Mines tight enough that if I max inflate to 115 it rubs a lil bit. If I take it down 5-10psi it clears. You guys are probably right. I just get worried about weird **** like that.

    Fresh Dodici build. (9mm Size S)
    Shadow Cons.
    Chain, headset, BB, 30t sprock, clear grips
    Endzone saddle
    Origin8 post
    Crank Bros Pedals
    Hoffman Fat Free Bars.
    I consider the stem mine since I refinished it by scraping it on a brick.
    Cheapest purple cranks on earth (J&B)
    Built the wheels myself Origin8 hubs, Champion spokes, Alex ESDV25 32mm wide AM rims. 32-4x FTW

    I had a plan for a brake, which did not work out. It skids like a dream, in the saddle or standing up. I'm not strong enough to KEEP it skidding unless I am over the bars, but it would't take squats, just practice. I'm gonna sell it tho. I'm sure I would kill myself.

    Enjoy!
