THEY ARE HERE!!!Juanmoretime

After building my first full Campy bike, I had built up my Vortex with with Campy also, I was bitten by the Campy bug hard. I ordered a Wheels Manufacturing conversion cassette. After only 100 miles on it, I decided I had to have a set of Eurus wheels and a Record steel - ti cassette. They came in today. I may just have to leave work early to go set them up and get in a test ride. Now I need to sell the conversion cassette and a set of Velomax Curcuit Comps. There could be worse problems. I will post a review on the ride.

Forget the Velomax comps, get a pair of Lews or Reynolds Stratus, or just go for the top dog, Hyperons.

Have fun. I've finally decided to get rid of most of my DA stuff and turn my last Shimmy bike to Campy.
I'll take the DA stuff you're throwing away! [nm]speedisgood

I bought them from wisecyclebuys.com, William told me he uses the same set up on his bike, same fork and wheels, and his don't rub. He did say his was very close. I'm going to first mount them on my bike on the repair stand and see if they rub on my fork. If they do, I may try to remove some of the material on the outside of the dust cap. I'll let you know how it goes.
Hey, The Bull, decision made.Juanmoretime

When I arrived home, I yanked my front wheel off and put on the Eurus, absolutely zero clearance problems. I have two to three mm clearance between the closes contact point, not only can I fit a business card between, I can fit 4 of them. I also made sure the wheel was fully seated in the drop out and it was. When I give the wheel a good spin, it turns forever. I also took it for a short ride cornering hard to see if it had an effect, re-checked it and everything was still fine. I don't know why you had the problem and only three thoughts come to mind: 1. The rake and on mine is a 43, maybe different rake angles have an effect?
2. Possible the dropout's on your fork were cut or forged deeper? 3. Murphy's Law somehow bit you on the a$$?

Your fork is a Ouzo Pro not Comp, correct?
Just wanted to let you know.
yep got pro with 43.the bull
