Hi,

I have a pair of Lightweight Standard Gen II tubular wheels. The online manual for the new Milensteins says that the accepted tyre widths are 19-27mm. Does anyone know if this was the same for the previous models? I have tried to search but can't find an answer.

Thanks
Phil

I have Gen IIs. They will be fine with 25mm tires. Incidentally, the Gen II wheels do not feature a 'modern' or 'C2'-style rim bed (i.e., a deep, aero rim), so you can very easily use a 22mm tire without the risk of pinch-flatting.
