I know that the Campy EPS can be finicky when using non-Campy drive train components, i.e., cranks. Does anyone currently have this setup (SR EPS w/ Clavicula cranks/Praxis rings)? If so, does it shift as well as a full Campy drive train?

Thanks in advance!

Don't have Claviculas, but I have Look Zed2 crankset on my Look 695 with stronglight rings and EPS super record. Shifting is as good as my wife bike with Athena EPS with Campy 11sp crankset. So I assume EPS works perfectly with Claviculas/Praxis crankset.

I do not have EPS, but mechanical SR. I was also very scared about performance with Clavicula and non Campagnolo rings. But my build was WW project so I decided to buy Clavicula with FibreLyte rings. Front shifting is great and I did not have any single problem during whole season with this setup.

I have Rotor 3D+ with a Power2Max and Praxis Works chainrings on my Campy 11s and shifting is superb and I never had a single miss shift. You shouldn't have any issues.

Thanks for the replies -- I know that the SR11 mechanical with Clavicula/Praxis works (required minor FD adjustment due to higher Q factor of the Clavicula). The EPS, however, is quite a bit more sensitive to non-Campy hardware. My LBS swears they'd be able to make it work but they haven't done it. Hence, my quest for first hand experience.

Tumppi, glad to know that SR EPS works well with your Look/Stronglight combo!

My personal Storck Fascenario F0.6 comes with the PowerArms which are basically a THM M3 crankset...have some Tune chainrings and EPS SR and works perfectly.

Yep -- I've seen a photo of that setup on the Storck site. Glad to know that the shifting works perfectly. Did it require anything out of the ordinary in terms of FD setup?

I have EPS with a Clavicula Crank and Praxis(sp?) chain rings. It works fine, The only issue I'm having is the when the front der. is in the smallest ring there is rub in the cage when I am on the lowest cog in the rear.

I think that's quite normal when riding cross-chain -- does it on my mechanical SR. Interested to know if you've ever dropped a chain when shifting from 53 to 39 (or 50 to 36 if compact). Do you use a chain catcher with this setup? Thanks.

Not normal. EPS set up properly does not rub anywhere.


With Claviculas?

At least with my Storck PowerArms (Same as M3) there's never any rub of the chain with the FD.
Guess FD positioning coudl also influence this but as noted if it's well setup the FD adjust itself to eliminate any chain rub.
