Carbon or steel fork?

Max I can do on mine is 700x27 with the F1 carbon fork.

Vittoria Paves.

I've never tried 28's, but I've got 25's on mine now and I just checked and with the steel fork, there looks like there might be room.

Yeah, it looks like there's a bit o' space.

There seems to be some variation on these steel forks.

Some have a bunch like yours and some don't.

Calipers make a difference as well.

I couldn't fit Chorus or Record calipers with 700x27, but Ultegras are just fine.

25's on mine w/ the carbon fork, and I'd think 28's would be pushing it. I'd go with Gomango's suggestion of hte 27 Paves- he's BTDT.
