your fron Eurus and Reynolds fork issue. I have a Reynolds fork and am considering buying a set of Eurus wheels.

Thanks,

Juan

I would suspect all campy hubs of this design to rub!
Look on the dust cap and see if a light line is scratched into surface.While going down the road with tailwind you hear a slight noise as well(because you wont hear wind noise).I ended up filing SLOWLY with a small cutoff wheel using a dremel tool.I higly stress the fact that you do it slow because God knows what the carbon,glue and alloy will do if it is heated up to hot.It might weaken the bond.This as you know could cause death(While riding the bike of course -probally a year or two from now)!
SO do it right!!!!
Also watch out for the carbon if the cutoff wheel hits it
can likely weaken fork.
Wear eye protection!if you graze the carbon a little it is very uncomfortable in your eyes.Keep taking of small amounts of aluiminum untill you can slide a buisness card inbetween the fork and hub.Let me know if you have any questions I will be more than happy to help!

That looks like scary stuff, I don't know if I want to do that to my fork. I might just keep my Velomax Curcuit for up front and just buy the back wheel.
It really not that bad.the bull

Just looks scuffy.Pretty much just taking off the little ridge.But when you spend as much as I did on all my stuff you should not have to go through that kinda B.S.!
