I find myself in urgent need of the new Campy Chorus 12 speed 11x34 cassette and 48x32 cranks for my upcoming holiday in a couple of weeks. Does anyone know of an internet retailer who might have them in stock in the immediate future? Worst comes to worst I’ll make do with either the cassette or the cranks, but it would be great to secure both.

Thanks much!

Edward

Rats rats rats. Thanks though for the information.

Am I right that there are no third party 11x34 cassettes or supercompact cranks for Campy 12 speed?

Thanks again.

TA makes 46 and 48 size rings. Other sizes as well IIRC.

FSA supercompacts would work.

I actually have a FSA subcompact on my Campy 11 speed, but I was told by my LBS that the chainrings won’t work with a 12 speed chain. Was that bad info?

Probably - I think there are lots of reports the 11sp rings work fine. Look through the Campy 12sp thread

FSA say it's 12s compatible.

Great to hear! I will pursue. I wish I had pushed the LBS harder.

Could be the LBS just has misgivings about shift quality or reluctance to mix and match as campy really does shift better with campy stuff...
