Max tire width for Diamondbak Podium 3
 
Bike comes with 700x23 tires. Is there enough room to go as high as 700x28 or will I be rubbing up on the stays?

I don't know.

Keep in mind that when they make a tire a little bit wider it also turns out to be a little bit taller. Check out how much clearance you have now between the top of your tire and the bottom of the fork crown and between the top of your tire and the chainstay bridge.

With 28 mm tires I find that i have to loosen my brake cables a skosh so i can squeeze my tire past the brake pads even with the QR open.

Look everywhere the tire passes by for close clearance; I have a bike where the front derailleur mechanism is the rear tire "choke point".
