That noted I recall that the rear der spring was a running change in the 2010 model year and I suspect that the shifting action came about also as a 2010 running change.
I want to make a performance - value - frankenstein Campag 11 speed, choosing from these main 3 group (chor/ Rec/ SR)
Budget is moderate. What would you guys think to be the best combination of price/performance? (not care much about super light weight). I don't race but want long lasting and good looking group.
1. Chorus Cassette - durable, cheap,
2. Chain? how are the three difference? My local mechanic said for Shimano, Cassette and chain profile of, say Dura-Ace made it easier to shift compared to 105/Ultegra casstte/chain. Does this hold truth for Campy as well?
3. Shifter - I think Record just for a tad of red bling - I take it that all three function almost the same if well adjusted?
4. Rear Der - Chorus for durability, may be Record for bling carbon factor
5. Front Der - Chorus for stiffness and durability
6. Crank - Record for the bling, may be 2nd hand
Should I change anything? No SR in here, not sure if any part is worth the price.
Is it worth 50% more $$$ for a different decal color?
I just purchased a Chorus group with an Athena FD. I would have purchased an Athena RD, but I was swayed by the carbon cover that matched my shifters (along with the great prices on Ribble/Wiggle.) I still kind of regret it because there was zero added functionality over the Athena RD.
Go full Chorus and throw the rest into a new wheelset or your retirement fund.
Don't waste your monies on record the black and white chorus looks great and works with 100% the same mechanical operation
The 10spd front mech has worked without flaw and the only part I would change on a chorus g/set is the crank bearings. Also the Athena g/set is slightly heavier than Chorus but only loses function with the power shift ergos towards Chorus ultra shift.
I upgraded the shifters to Record too as I was under the impression that the top two groups use ball bearings for the shift mechanisms and are likely to offer greater durability.
Certainly Chorus Cassette is a massive cost saving for little compromise (weight) and the chain is harder wearing too. The brakes are the same functionally as are the cranks and the front mech. It works well but I would definitely go for the dual pivot rear brake if you ride the hills.
