While I have seen it mentioned in numerous articles that there is a 12-32 cassette with the new Centaur groupset, I have yet to see what the gear ratios are for it. Does anyone happen to know what they are? I haven't seen a tech doc for it anywhere. Any word on this, @graeme_f_k?

Would the last triple, which I assume will match the Potenza's 25-28-32, be able to be used in a mix with an otherwise all-Chorus 12-29 cassette?

I think it's 12-13-14-15-16-17-19-22-25-28-32

I've asked the question as the documentation we have is very early and *possibly* subject to change - I don't think it will be wrong but I'd still rather confirm!

The triplet will *possibly" work but bear in mind the different construction of the cassette between Centaur / Potenza and Chorus ... also the ramps and gates will be out of synch so the shift under load will probably not be as smooth ... Campag don't usually test for these types of consumer hacks so I have no absolute info and usually when we ask the factory they'll just say "we never tested it" ... they don't like to be drawn. If it absolutely won't work, they'll usually be pretty explicit about that.
A Tech-Reps work is never done ...

In that case I'll just use the Centaur cassette in its full form. No use using a hack like that if it's going to result in a suboptimal experience.

I'm just happy to finally see a 12-32 option as it is and will be happy to use it with a the Potenza derailleur that I have for when I need a wider range cassette.

and of course, it was two days after I placed my long awaited order of Bora One 50's, they announce the updated brake track. It's not life changing, but it sucks to not even have delivery of something to find out it's "outdated".

Surely you can just cancel your order then and re-order when they have the new one in?

I think price are more or less the same as the so called old models.
Belgian and dutch bikeshops can allready order them at the local campagnolo distributor.

Anyone have word on the HO derailleurs? Will they be compatible with bigger cassettes?
But I could be wrong

OK, I have a challenge for Campy. . A new pedal. One that has the durability of Shimano Dura-Ace (which I run) and the weight of sat a Time Xpresso 12 (without that alloying lateral float).

Good point on the pedal. Let's have something similar to DA with a bit less weight.

Agree with whoever said shorter cranks. They are missing a trend in only having 170mm (ex the 165mm oddball non-group effort)

And very un female friendly. Really quite odd having 170mm as your shortest crank tbh
