Sorry, no scale :(

I will post pictures tomorrow.

On a sidenote, the instructions say to use a 23-25mm clincher tire... I've never mounted a 23 in my life, always sed 20s... they also give a recommended pressure of 117psi for the 23mm tire in the manual.

Are they clincher or tubular rims?

I think the table you refer to from the manual is for guidance. I've run 21mm Tufo's with no problem and this was okay'ed by Campag.

As long as the tyre says its suitable for the ETRTO of the rim the 20mm tyre should be fine.

Its a 622 which is what the Manual states to have... I wonder why they say 23 or 25mm though... must just be because 20s are slowly disappearing..

Some tyres require a 13mm-15mm gap between the rim walls. I think the table that gives the details you mention is the maximum recommended pressure for those width tyres.

Have just remembered something else with my Campag rims....there is a label on the rim which gives the minimum and maximum width tyres. I'll have look at it when I get in from work in the morning and see what mine says.

I'm looking on the campy website now, and pulled up the instructions for the Carbon Eurus wheels.. the manual in there mentions tires from 18-25mm :noidea:

Thats the important figure :) I'm 99.99% certain that the 23/25mm mentioned was a guide for max. pressures.
