    700x28 fitment

    Just installed Continental 4000s II in 700x28 on my 2014 Specialized Roubaix. Wheels are Fulcrum S4's - 20.5mm external width, 17mm internal width. Tire fits perfectly with room to spare.

    Actual tire width measured at 29.6mm

    Feels way better. Probably because I'm running tire pressure at 70 front and 75 rear. I am also coming from the Specialized Roubaix 23/25 tires, which have a harder rubber. So a more supple tire combined with lower pressure equals a very smooth ride without sacrificing performance.

    Do you think it would still fit if you pumped it up to its maximum pressure? I think it's 115 psi on that tire.

    Trek's new line of endurance road bikes, Domane SLR and Domane SL, come with 32c tires.

    My 2014/15 Domane came with 25c. When I switched to 28c it made a huge positive difference in speed and comfort.

    I now have 32c on the front and the largest that will fit on the back 28c. I wish I could have 32c on both front and back. (On the front I've recently discovered that I may have to cut back to 28c by necessity as opposed to what I like.)

    Why would you want the tires pumped up to 115psi?

    At 250 lbs it would be worth your while to get a bike with room for 32 or 35mm tires, or larger. High volume, lower pressure is your friend.
