I’ve had continental grand prix 4000 II in the past and found the 700x28 to be a very tight fit in my frame. Does anyone know if the new Continental Grand Prix 5000 TL is the same shape as the 4000?If it is I’ll buy a pair of 25’s.
I think they're round so you should be OK.
GP 4000 II are larger compared to regular GP5000.
25 mm TL version is closer to 27 mm. Have them on my bike and found to be pretty comfortable.
