    25mm tires fit 2014 Caad 10s? 2015 vs 2014 Caad 10 questions

    Saw that the 2015 CAAD 10s now fit 25mm tires. Where there alterations made to the frame and fork to fit this? Or 2014 and 2015 models exactly the same in terms of specs?

    Ive heard of people saying that 25mm tires on their 2014 Caad10s were too close for comfort on the chainstays but personally havent seen firt hand.

    I have 22mm width Assault Wheelsets using 23mm tires. Thinking of getting 25mm tires but not sure if it would fit / clearance issues.

    Just making sure. Thanks

    I cannot tell you specifically, but have installed 25mm tires on several of my bikes and can offer an approach that will give you a pretty good idea.

    Using your allen keys as feeler gauges, check at every point with your existing setup where there could be an issue and note the clearance you have now:

    front - under brake.
    Rear - under brake
    - chainstays
    - tire to seat tube (the closest point on my Cannondale btw).

    Assume that the 25mm tires are going to need 1 extra mm all around than what you have now.

    There are also differences between manufacturers - Conti are on the small side for instance and measure about 1mm less than the Pro race.

    Hope this helps.

    My girlfriend runs Schwalbe Ultremo DD in 25c on her 48cm CAAD 10 with no problem at all. In fact for a while she had some Michelin Pro Race 4 25c tires which measure closer to a 28c with no problem. Granted she was running them on rims slightly narrower then yours.

    Now my EVO is a whole other story.....

    No problem running 28mm Vittoria Pavé CG on 15c rims on a CAAD 10 2013-2015.
    They do anything just to win a salami in ridiculous races. I take my gear out of the car and put my bike together. Tourists and locals are watching from sidewalk cafes. Non-racers. The emptiness of those lives shocks me. It was the illest of times, it was the dopest of times. And we looked damn good. Actually the autobus broke down somewhere on the Mortirolo.

    I have had zero issues running 25mm Gatorkins on my 2014 Caad10. As mentioned above I think some riders are fitting 28s in there, which I am guessing is a bit of a tight fit. I think Cannondale has starting speccing 25mm tires as more people are running that size over the 23mm that came stock on the bikes.

    I had a few concerns about this myself...My wife has a 2010 CAAD8 or 9 with the stock tires. She has an old Schwinn with fairly fresh Bontrager 28c touring tires that she wants on the Cannondale, so I was mostly curious if it would work decently.
    I lost my phone number. Can I have yours?

    No prob at all, I've been running Conti and Vittoria 25s for years on my Caad10's, '12 '13 and '14. I even broke a rear spoke last week and no rubbing.

    Nope, the 28c Bontrager tires rub everywhere.

    I run 25s on my 2012 and swear I could do 28s if I wanted, but have never tried.
