I have recently received a Campagnolo Chorus Lever Shifter Set and Chorus Rear Derailleur. I ordered these items as 2014 models. On the Lever Set box the inside sticker says 2010. Both assembly and warranty brochures state 2010 as well. The Chorus Derailleur says 2012 on the warranty and 2013 on the assembly brochure.

How can the date of manufacturing be confirmed on these items, so I know I have the latest revisions? The bar code stickers on the sides of the boxes do not seem to have any dates on them.

the date is when the sticker was "made in italy"....

Its not a best before end of date, so wouldnt worry as long as they're all matching :thumbup:

The date on the sticker inside the box is just the date this sticker (text) is released.
Like in manuals you find a datereference often when the manual was made.

I believe for these Chorus parts there is nothing changed at least from on 2011.
However you can download the brochures from Campa site and look for yourself.

(Besides that you can check tech docs too)

OP, I have asked the same question in the past and never got an answer.

If one of the numbers is a serial # then presumably a Campy tech center might know.

And contrary to the smart alec answers, there are times when it would be very useful to know, since shifters and derailleurs have undergone a couple of unannounced running changes since 2009.

The assumption is, is that there have been no revisions since the release of these parts. Campag make products that typically survive a number of years without revisions. Something released in 2010, for example, might be exactly the same part as a 2014 product, but with a different serial number.

My advice would be to reference the part number of these components against Campag Spare Part Guides, available here: http://www.campagnolo.com/jsp/en/doc/doccatid_3.jsp
