Want new Campy 10s cassette......which?kendoo
Dec 7, 2001 6:03 PM
Just bought a new Bianchi with Campy Daytona Group. I noticed that a few teeth on one of the cogs is bent. Unfortunately this was a private deal so I can't return it. It is a 11/23 and I would prefer a 12/25 anyway, so I plan to replace it. Should I go with a chorus or record cassette? I don't want to spend the extra $$ if I won't notice any difference. I'm not worried about the extra weight (I assume the higher end stuff is lighter).

Record, Chorus and Daytona (newly renamed Centaur) all shift exactly alike. Record is $$, will either all Ti cogs (VERY $$!) or 3 Ti 7 steel. Chorus cogs are steel, with some cogs mounted on alloy carriers to save weight. Daytona/Centaur cogs are individual, all steel, weigh a bit more and cost a bit less. If weight not an issue, get the Daytona/Centaur level cogs. They work exactly the same as Chorus or Record, but cost less. Big price jump between Chorus and Record. Record Ti cogs are less durable, cost more, weigh a little less.

chorus seems like the best value to me, but weight IS an issue for myself. if it isn't, go daytona.
either way, is cheap as sh1t, but might take a couple of extra days over a US mailorder.

Go to the Branford Bikes website for a complete explanation of the differences in Campy cassettes, including 'loose cog' cassettes that may be of interest to you.

Go Daytona or Chorus. I've got both and the weight dif is negligable.

email me if you want a domestic source for C10 cassettes at sub net price.
