I recently installed Campy Chorus components on my road bike. Did I do something wrong? They rattle! It's not too bad, but on semi-rough pavement when I'm riding on the tops they can get pretty noisy, and embarrasing. I don't think I forgot to tighten anything.

It may be your "up shifter" levers (the ones behind the brake levers, not the mouse ears). They could be hitting the brake levers. Try this to find out: when riding on rough roads, ride the hoods and put your fingers on the shifter levers. If this kills the noise, you've found the problem. I can't be sure about your system, but my levers have a rubber bumper installed just to prevent this problem. One of the bumpers fell out, and the lever made noises on rough surfaces. Replace the bumper, noise gone.
