I totally get that they will not make one. I totally get that a business needs to make money. I'm not the one that said they will make a closer cassette, it was Campagnolo. https://bikerumor.com/2018/04/09/campag ... groupsets/
How hard would it be to make the second portion of the cassette to go no more than 27? I'm assuming it can so it would not be that much. Yeah, I get there is more to the cost of the part other than the materials [marketing, parts, logistics, etc]. It is possible, that it cannot physically work because the spokes are in the way but Campagnolo surely did not mention that.
If there are at least 2 people on this forum that likes a 12-25 [with a 53/39] but I'm certain there are more out there. Everyone says that the larger gear ratios are so much better but they fail to understand that those ratios would never be used by people like me. I climb mountains fine with what I have but I will concede that having a 27 may be helpful at times. Certainly not a 29.
I want to go to 12 and as I stated, I probably will but I would already have it if they had something no more than 27.
Those that sell bikes for a living and wonder why no one buys close ratio cassettes may look outside and see where they live. I bet there are some bike shops that rarely sell anything above 25.
Campagnolo, if you are reading this, please make a 11-27.
