The "C" never meant centimeters, though. Anyone who thinks that is being dumb about the metric system.

And it only takes a 39mm tire to get up to 700mm. That seems pretty reasonable to me.

So you were seeing 32-33 on the Park Tool gauge?

FB would have argued it was "too much spoke for the rim." 12g/2.6mm spokes probably don't elongate much, if at all, at 100-110kgf.
