    Different Brake Caliper "Plate" Sizes???

    Does there exist different sizes of the brake caliper "plate"? (see red arrow in picture)

    I am using Continental GP4000s II 25mm tires on a 2017 S5 with Red Aerolink brakes. There is about 1mm of clearance (maybe less) between the tire and the brake caliper. If there exists a shorter "plate" I think that should allow more clearance (maybe 1-2mm more). The front tire has plenty of clearance.

    I took a look at the S5 manual and it appears that particular piece is size specific to the frame, so can't get a shorter size.

    So looks like I'll either continue riding with 25mm or drop down to GP4000s II 23mm or switch to some other brand 25mm (Bontrager seems to be OK).

    The Continental GP 23mm that came with the bike wasn't much better...
