With the trend leaning towards wider road cycling tyres being a better ride, it’s time to find out if a set of 28mm clincher tyres fit on my 2019 Medium sized Giant TCR road bike. Given the differences in tyres, rims, frame clearances, etc, there’s not a lot of information out there on exactly what works and what doesn’t when it comes to specific setups. Today in the Lama Garage I test THREE sets of wheels all with different internal rim widths (17mm, 19mm, 21mm) with a set of Continental GP5000 28mm clincher tyres (~80psi) to see what fits and what doesn’t.
