I picked up some continental 4000s 28s for my bike. Bike is 2015 specialized roubaix sl4 with axis 1.0 brakes. Are there any brakes that would prevent me having to deflate the tube to take on and off. Once you get it on, it has proper clearance but getting on and off is the issue. I read reviews on Shimano 105 brakes and the description says fits 28 tires.....does this mean I wouldn't have to deflate? Any brake that could help would be better.
How close to the rim do you have the pads set? Some people set them much closer to the rim than necessary, which makes it hard to remove the wheel and also makes for poorer brake modulation because you have to brake with your finger tips on the levers.
