aerospoke wheelset questions (are these tubular or clinchers?)

I am getting ready to buy some tubes and tires from amazon, but not sure if it will fit. can anyone please help me? i need to get these on and installed by the ms150 date (4/12/2014) and time is running out for me after i wait for shipping...

thanks guys

will the below tubes and tires work below? i made sure to get an 80mm tube so it sticks out far enough =)

whats the difference between 700x23 and 700x23mm?

thanks

The links you specified are for a wired (clincher, wire bead) tire and a tube. And the tube will fit a 700x23 tire. I just don't know for sure that you have a clincher rim.

BTW, 700Cx23, 700x23mm, and 23x622 are all designations for the same size tire. It is the third version of a nominally-700cm wheel (A, B, and C with a bead seat diameter of 622 mm. The tire width is 23mm. Note that the other sizes: 700A, 700B, etc, are not compatible with 700C. If you go by the ISO number, 23x622, you'll guarantee getting the correct size.

As with most things in the bicycling world, Sheldon Brown wrote a good article on tire sizing.
