Chorus 11 and TRP HY/RD's.
Did you need to do anything special for the setup? Are you satisfied with the results? Do you Race CX with this setup?
I've been running Campag ergo levers with TRP HY/RDs for a few years. Some observations:
- use of compressionless cable, even though it's awkward stiff stuff, is a must for good performance
- the stock pads were crap, replacements have been better
- if cable pull is giving you hassle and you wish you had more, then undo the Ergo QR button, clamp the inner wire at caliper end, then redo the ergo QR button. This takes up some initial travel and is very effective. (Yes I know TRP advise against not letting the pistons completely release but I've never found any evidence that this is a real problem and if you're concerned, undo the Ergo QR button when you're not using the bike.)
I don't do CX races but I've done a few gravel events now. The Ergo thumb tab is just fine in use and in fact the hood shape, when you ride with hands on the hoods, provides good hand retention when riding over very rough ground.
