    I'm researching some new wheels and I like the 25mm carbon clinchers. What is the minimum clearance needed at the bottom near the chain stays that's considered safe play? I have plenty clearance at the rear brakes and there's no clearance concerns for the front wheel either. My concern is the chain stay area. I can't get a real accurate measurement of the width down there, but I have approximately 33mm clearance. I will check with Trek to see if they can provide the exact measurements, but thought I'd query you'll until I can contact Trek. I have the Trek Madone 4.6 if anyone out there knows the answer.

    Thanks...
