Thank you kindly sir! I've got something new coming up within a couple of weeks. Gravel it'll be!

I'm guessing Ekar 1x13

Sorry for the late question but how wide a tire can you mount? 32mm?

Pretty sure they're rated for a 30mm max but you could fit 32's.

Technically you could fit a 35c tire in the new Specialized Aethos but the wheel/dropout area flexes so much that the tire would rub when you were out of the saddle. Throw something laterally stiff on there like an Industry Nine wheelset and you might get better off though.

I'm about to buy one and really want to try and fit 32s. Thanks so much. No dealers in my area unfortunately.

It varies how much extra clearance a manufacturer builds in and how wide your rims are will impact the tire width too... like the GP5K 32mm tires on my wheels actually measure out at like 36mm. My Domane is rated to 38mm tires but running true 38mm tires I've got easily 6mm of space on each side of the rubber. Could definitely run 40's and probably 42's just looking at it.

Also, a 32c from manufacturer “x” will measure differently than a 32c of manufacturer “y”.

How are you finding your Domane? I'm due a new road bike and was thinking about going full gravel/cyclocross but it will more than likely be 70% road and 30% gravel.

Stuck between something more road like the Domane, a racey gravel bike like the Aspero/Warbird or full cross like the new Giant TCX

Really love it... I really liked the previous generation and they managed to make everything good about it better while not screwing anything up. Kept the geometry the same but made it more compliant while also being stiffer and able to take much larger tires. The only complaint I've had is that the wider chainstay didn't leave enough clearance for the crankarm magnets that allowed the force vector measurement on my power meter, but it wasn't something I used enough to really miss so not a big loss.

If you're looking to ride gravel that borders more on trail riding than fire road riding, you'd probably want something a bit less road oriented but for road riding with the occasional dirt road riding, it's pretty much perfect in my opinion.
