Hm, let's presume that on 19mm width rim tire is lower profile than on a 23mm width rim.

How these things...

Thanks, managed to take a proper shot of the bike on the road, have to say 10 speed 105 is a joy to use, very crisp shifting and setting up the bottom bracket and cranks seems like a child's play!
