Any rumors about the 2015 Campagnolo wheel lineup? Anything new coming out?
It's all downhill from here, except for the uphills.

Competitive Cyclist is now advertising the new SR mechanical crank set.

Here is the link which I provided because it has some nice photographs:
http://www.competitivecyclist.com/compe ... mv_pc=r105

The crank set looks like the previous models with toned-down graphics. The rear derailleur looks pretty good. In the blurb accompanying the shifters, the "RS" version (that's what's being advertised) is noted as a "limited edition, mid-season offering". That qualifier isn't present elsewhere that I noticed. I hope this version is the actual 2015 iteration, since some of the scans here on WW of a crankset were really aesthetic horrors. Prices are punishing.

That's because this is RS and not SR. A special edition of the 2014 Campagnolo line, 2015 is completely different.

Ah, ha! A clever inversion of a couple of letters and you have an entirely novel set of components!! In any event, if the appearance of the 2015 line-up looks like the RS, I'd like it a lot. If it looks like the pictures shown in this thread, I'd pass (but I did just spring in December for new SR-11 parts to replace my 2006 Record set-up, so I'd pass anyway).

Thanks for clarifying,
KAC

It's a different aesthetic, but I still dig it.

Yes, absolutely it does!

In fact I am buying now SR 14 to keep in the box for my next build so I don't have to live with these horrible cranksets in the future...

It looks like it's within 20 Grams +- of Exisiting SR comparing Bikerumor weights to Fairwheel

The real question that everyone wants to know and no one is asking is.......
When is someone going to open a 2015 Campagnolo groups thread?
