Also wondering about the fit but I'd think it'd be the opposite, that the top tube would be too long.

Did the same thing but went to 1x10. Also used a new ss crank. Chainline is fine. If reusing original cranks, just put it in the middle ring position. You don't need narrow wide but it helps avoid...

Check the b limit screw also. Even if it's new, it sounds like either something is wrong (eg, hanger) it it was never adjusted properly to begin with.

Are you using new bar tape or reusing old bar tape? Old bar tape can have areas that have stretched more and thus become more flat.

Going to 25 from 23 won't be a big change. That said, as others have pointed out you don't need to go 120psi on the 23s. I'm similar weight as OP and for 23s I run 105psi. For 25s I run 95-100 psi....

I routinely ride 20/24 wheels but with a disc brake setup I would go for 28 or 32. At your weight I don't have reservations about spoke count but running discs I would recommend more spokes.

I weigh more than you and have ridden 20/24 wheelsets with no problems. I've also ridden 32/32 wheels and have them gone out of true. So it depends on the build and whether you ride with load/cargo.
