Sorry if this has been posted before (Google search on site:bikeforums.net didn't turn up much), but I'm trying to determine how wide a tire I can fit on a set of Campagnolo Ventos. I am a sucker for a Campy drivetrain, and I'm considering a cross bike build. I've used Ventos on the road and was very happy with their sturdiness and performance.
I see on Bianchi's website that they have Ventos fitted to their Cross Veloce and there are 700x32 tires on that. Is 700x32 the limit or could I go a little wider, say 700x35? Thanks!

I'm seeing the Ventos out there for really good prices and thinking of trying a set myself. My concern is ruggedness rather than width. Would you say they were fit for a clyde?

I had a set a couple years ago on a road bike, and they were very dependable. I have read nothing but good reviews over the last three years especially with regards to their durability.

I've got the Ventos on my Cross Veloce ('05). They came 32's and look like 35's or 37's would be just fine. As to handling the weight, I bunny hop them suckers all day and weigh 215 before the full kit and commuter bag. No worries.
