    38's were the largest I could ever mount on a Diverge. 40's would rub.
    You can't fix stupid.

    Which diverge?

    The first gen ones are tight.

    The newer carbon ones clear 42's with a good amount of room.

    I think the aluminum ones can fit around a 38.

    How do you like the diverge? Also do you ride it on the road much and what are thoughts of the diverge as a road bike. 30 mile road ride is usually about the top of my range. I am also doing some gravel races in Vermont this year and think this bike would make an excellent choice.

    They Diverge is awesome on the road, the Roubaix is *SLIGHTLY* better, mostly because it comes with a compact road crank, not an ultra compact.

    If your gravel roads are hard pack dirt/small gravel, either bike will work.

    If you are talking fire roads, the Diverge is a WAY better option.
