Moving from 25mm to 30mm Tyres

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Wide tires with lower pressures are slower than thin hard ones. The studies claiming otherwise that came out recently are suspicious to me, I think it's big gravel trying to pervert the sport and sell stuff to roadies. This is similar to the UCI banning the supertuck position, they're trying trying to sell roadies dropper posts. Follow the money.

Pretty much everyone in this thread who switched from 25 mm to 28 or 30 has reported otherwise.

If you'd seen pics of Larry's aero bars, you'd know not to take his post too seriously.

Well, at least he's not in service of the big aerobar!
