Epilogue:

After a very long search and countless hours spent obsessing over this over the past two months, I finally opted not to push the envelope and bought a pair of Giant SLR 0 Aero 55s. The...

I yield to your understanding on the physics of it. I yield to just about anybody on the physics of it - not my area. But I've certainly read of tests that found what I described. My local bike...

Fortunately for me, there was nothing special or oversized about the 25mm Conti tires I used. The Cannondale rep agreed. He actually saw the bike in person, with the tires and wheels on it. Having...

The spec-ed wheels were wider. Smart Enve SES 3.4, the pre-2017 versions which were, as I recall 24.5-ish mm wide at the brake track. I don't remember the brand of tires I think it was Schwalbe but...

The bike came spec-ed with 25 mm tires. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that maybe it was designed for them.

I should say that the replacement (which I just picked up today) is not a more recent model but rather *exactly* the same frame as I had before. The 2015 Black Inc Nano. So I'm in the same boat as...

There is no prohibition or even recommendation from Cannondale to *not* run 25s. The Cannondale rep was fully aware of the wheels and tires I used. In fact, the guy at the shop told me he came in...

Operator error? It's not difficult to put in a wheel. And I've certainly never ever had the experience of taking out my rear C24 and finding it was somehow not set properly.

You did indeed. But frankly, if I couldn't ride 25s, I'd end up getting a different bike anyway. Very happy that I'll still be on the bike I want with wider chainstays now.

Gotta get a new...

Appreciate all the answers. However this all became moot recently. After all the reports of people having gouges rubbed out of their chainstays, I took my rear wheel off and took a really close...

If you don't mind, a couple of more questions:

1. Are those tires 23 or 25 mm? -- [edit, nevermind about this one, I just re-read your post]
2. Are you sure those rims are actually 25.5? I...

Wow that is a tight fit. But as long as the wheels don't flex, it looks reasonable. I'm definitely looking into wheels with minimal lateral flex.

Thanks for the photos!

Wow. 25.5 mm? You are the first person I've heard who has been able to run wheels that wide.

I don't have access to the most of wheels I would want to buy. And even if I did, sometimes, a wheel can seem fine when just seated in a frame but flex under load. I'm hoping to hear from anyone...

2015 Supersix Evo - how wide can my rear wheel be?

I've long known that the Cannondale Supersix Evo in model years 2013-2015 has narrow chainstays. I've seen many threads with people reporting that their tires (usually 25 mm) rub up against the...
