I just bought a beautiful pair of vintage Campy NR wheels with Mavic rims that I would love to run on an '84 Trek 520 touring bike I have, but I live in the Colorado Mtns. on dirt roads and I like to run 700c X 35 tires for both pavement & dirt. The inside diameter of the rims is 13.5 mm. (outside 19.5) The chart on Sheldon Browns site says that would be much too small a rim for this size of tire, but other sources like the Performance Bike site claim it would be no problem.
Any thoughts out there on this subject?
Thanks so much.....bumbliwa
