Trying to get a full set of Campagnolo Chorus set but they don't have the 50/34 crankset available.

Anything I should be aware off if I buy a second hand SR 50/34 crankset for $250US

Worn chainrings?

For that price I'd be almost expecting them to be worn out.

In which case you may want to reconsider.

And look harder. Here's the first 2 I checked.

You don't say what crank length you want but Wiggle have Chorus compact and Velomine have Chorus compact.

There's sometimes a buggy.
How many drivers does a buggy have?

One.

So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

Not helping anymore, checked and they are gone: Canyon was selling the compact Chorus for only 200euros last month. I should have bought two...

Wiggle is showing 3 each of 172 and 175 mm 34/50 in stock.

With Velomine it's best to call.

Merlin is showing 172 34/50 in stock https://www.merlincycles.com/campagnolo-chorus-ultra-torque-11-speed-carbon-chainset-79613.html

Or save some money and buy the 2018 Centaur UT for $134 here https://www.texascyclesport.com/campagnolo-centaur-ultra-torque-11-speed-alloy-crankset-2018/

thanks guys, actually found a shop that had the whole Chorus set.
They were willing to take my Ultegra set off and install Chorus.....of course for a fee+price difference.

Anyway, didn't have the press fit tool and other tools so they are doing everything.

As to worn out SR chainrings, I thought they were really durable? isn't there a saying among you guys..."shimano wears out and campy wears in"

They are - and - There is.

But how many miles had they done?

In what weather conditions?

Nothing lasts forever... The Toyota LandCruiser Amazon I drive is reputed to do circa 300k miles... but will it do 400k? 500k? 600k? I doubt it. Nor would I want it to.
