Hello

I'm new to this forum so first of all, hello.

I'm in the process of building up a Pinarello Prologo and I am thinking about getting some campag shamals. I have seen these for sale, however the owner says they are both 700c, they dont look it from the picture. What do you guys think?



Also any general experience in using shamals? things to look for when buying...

Cheers

Front does look smaller, could be a set for a low pro TT bike, 700c rear 650c front.

Some photy forensic for ye........... :P

I'd say the Green Rabbit is right- if they were both 700c, the vanishing point through the rims, hubs, and wall skirting would coincide- ye can see that the blue lines are way off.

a 650b shamal looks like a small version of a normal sized shamal

I found both at my local recycling centre, a year apart
