Kilo's really have clearance for 32s? i thought they only went up 28s.

Haha, the Kilo is definitely, 100% maxed out w/ the 32s. I think the rims (25mm wide) are to thank for the tires fitting at all; they don't inflate quite as high with the wider rim, so it just barley makes them fit.

How have the 32 paselas worked out on this frame? Any rubbing?

They've been great! I actually swapped to 28s to be able to mount some fenders, which has been super rad. I don't remember them rubbing at all, but I think the only reason they fit was because the Aileron rims are so wide.
