Campagnolo was pretty late entering the rim market. I can't give an exact date, but I think they started selling rims around 1984. The Victory Crono and Strada rims were amongst the first models they sold. There was a Record series and a Victory series in tubular rims. If I'm not mistaken, clincher rims were added to the mix a year or so later.

In terms of quality, they were comparable with Mavic, a bit better than Fiammi and far better than Super Champion.

Yes, these have yellow labels with "Fiamme Italy" stamped into the rim between the labels. They are beautifully finished rims. I have to hit the archives to find out more about glues but if anyone wants to save me time fire away.

Oops, found another pair of rims: "Campagnolo Victory Crono"; these look like they might be more recent looking at the graphics. Timeframe?

-Fiamme Ergal Yellow label? These are the rims most CR Members want the most I believe? Approx 290gm.

Glue questions will be next, eh?
