    Cervelo S3 Disc wheel optoins & tyre clearance

    Hi Guys, I'm looking at buying a new set of wheels for my Cervelo S3D. It currently has the HED Ardennes GP plus disc wheelset (internal width 21mm , external 25mm) . I can only safely fit 23mm Conti GP4000sii tyres, a wider tyre gets extremely close to the non drive chainstay and rubs under power. I believe the enve 3.4 wheel set that came standard on the Di2 model were fitted with the first generation generation enve rims which are narrower. Has anyone in the forum had any experience with the new generation Enve 3.4 discs ( 27.5mm external, 21mm internal width) with extreme minimal tyre clearances? I would imagine 25mm tyres would balloon the same amount as the HED's given the internal width is the same. Any feedback and suggestions on a comparative wheel type would be appreciated. Cheers

    Hi John, this is exactly the reason why I sold me S3d again. My plan was to get a pair of the ZIPP 303 disc with 25mm tires - but no chance at all. I tried the Fulcrum Racing Quattro disc with 17mm internal width..but the same problem when 25mm Contis or 26mm S-Works Turbos - rubbing on the non drive side. I am afraid you have to stick to 23mm tires regardless the internal width of any tim available..

    According to the Cervelo website the S3d with the Ultegra 8020 setup indicates that it comes with "MAVIC YKSION ELITE 700 X 25C". Are these tire on the thinner side??? I have been planning on buying this bike with the idea that 25 mm will fit! WTH!

    From my experience, Conti's are taller and wider than other tire brands. A 23mm Conti measures to 25mm and 25mm measure to 28mm.
