These frames has been mentioned in a few recent posts - does anyone know how wide a tire one can run on a 56? I want to be able to run a 28 or 30, but don't need fenders. Any owners?

I've been mentioning these frames in various posts. I don't have one...yet ;)
Try emailing Planet X directly. I used to ride their mountain bikes and they used to return email questions timely and the person answering the emails was actually the designer, not office or customer rep.

According to the faq specs below, they say 25c for the Pro Road frame.
The Sportive frame says 25c WITH fenders, so possibly 28-30c without fenders?

Pro Road frame FAQ page (scroll to bottom of page):
  • Seatpost Size - 31.8mm
  • Seat Clamp Size - 34.9mm
  • Front Mech Clamp Size - 34.9mm
  • Wheels - 700C with clearance for 25mm tyres
  • Bottle Bosses - 2 sets on all sizes
Sportive frame FAQ page (scroll to bottom of page):
  • Seatpost Size - 27.2mm
  • Seat Clamp Size - 34.9mmmm
  • Front Mech Clamp Size - 34.9mm
  • Wheels - 700C with clearance for 25mm tyres with mudguards
  • mudguard mounts, but NO rack mounts
  • Bottle Bosses - 2 sets on all sizes
