    The frame geometry is so incredibly freakin perfect for me... and I have it dialed in so perfectly with all the NOS campy record and chorus components I've added over the years, I can't imagine buying a new bike to run wider tires. I did add Easton CF bars, which helps a lot with the 23-hard-tire vibration. But I'd love to be running some wider, lower pressure tires.

    Got my teenage son a low mileage shark fin Trek Madone on a screaming deal on Craigslist-23 or 25c tires on 17mm inner rims wouldn't fit but even 25c tires do mounted on 19mm i.w. rims-see if you can borrow some wider rimmed wheels

    I don't think I can find 19 mm rims to borrow that will accommodate my campy 8-speed cassette.

    You'd be stuck on one gear for test riding after checking for frame clearance-assuming they fit, you could then lace up wider rims on your current hubs; many of them still come in 32 hole versions.
