    Tossing around the idea of going 105.

    Edit: found a few old posts from different threads, I found this part number suggested: S142100004

    Is this compatible with my hub?

    Edit: I cant post anything on the "helpdesk" on Speccy's site

    I have a 2006 S-works and wondering if the Zert Inserts wear out (25,000 miles on frame) and if so can they be replaced?

    Hard to give an absolute number, because many rim nowadays have a bulbous cross-section, and the brake track is not necessarily the widest part of a rim.

    From personal experience, a Zipp 303 Firecrest is too wide to safely fit. There is only about 3mm clearance from widest part of rim, to chainstays.
    I don't feel comfortable unless there is at least 5-6 mm clearance -- else an out of true or flexing wheel can lead to disaster.
    The newer Tarmacs will easily & safely fit a Zipp 303

    Another example, a typical 25mm tire is inconvenient on the rear wheel of an SL2. Removing the wheel, requires a pretty hard shove forward to remove it, because the tire prematurely contacts the bottom bracket housing, and wheel axle won't quite be free of the frame lugs. However, there's plenty of clearance from safety aspect.

    Always best to do a trial fit, whenever possible.
