As above..... just wondering as it seems like a lot of stores are doing large discounts on cranks or iis this just a reduction in inventory drive?

So far, nothing new....
1) I hope there will be new BORAs soon:-) They have been around for centuries without any update:-)
2) There should be a smaller "in seat-post" battery for EPS.

Modernized triple cranksets (with PowerTorque now replacing the square taper). Triple compatibility in Centaur (10s) and Athena (11s) is now an option.

actually............my impression is that the better valued groups like Chorus, Athena, Veloce have gone down in price and are quite competitive and affordable.

as for OP's question, I don't think there were any changes to existing equipment, just the addition of new things.
There's sometimes a buggy.
How many drivers does a buggy have?

One.

So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...

Hi,

Not really true but what aspect of Boras would you like to see changed?

For me, and it does not restrict itself to the Bora wheel, I would like to see CULT bearings for the freewheel for starters.
Other than that?

Ciao, ;)

My take on the OP's comment about crankset pricing goes along with what I'm seeing in general for all their components - I believe Campy has backed off their (high $$) pricing structure from a couple of years ago. I've been loading up on many 11 spd SR parts as a result.

Regarding 2013 releases....In my mind the introduction of Athena EPS was essentially a 2013 new product introduction......as just like the other major component manufacturers and all car manufacturers, you actually can see some benefit to introducting your new products early in the prior year calendar.

I do not see any problem with them, they are great bullet proof wheels......it just seems to me, that aero wheels dont use V shape anymore, they are ovalized these days... So, I thought Campa is going to catch this fashion:)

Bora started off life with aluminium braking surface :D

I'd like to see a more modern rim shape. I have to run a 21mm front to get a smooth rim>tyre transition which is suboptimal for most conditions.

Veloce will also be available in triple. They also have a new 12-30 10 speed cassette, and a 12-29 11 speed cassette. I wish they wouldn't bother with power-torque, ultra-torque is much easier to deal will.

That would be great news if Campy released the internal battery option for EPS. We all know it's coming but I don't think it's out yet.

Yeah - Campy should be channelling all of their efforts into making an internal battery
