Campy Record break-in period(4 posts)

Campy Record break-in periodKP

I have a Record (rear derailleur + shifter) + Chorus (the rest) grouppo on my new Master-X. I'm just wondering that how long this grouppo will take to fully broken in. I've put about 40 miles on them but they still have some sounds coming from rear derailleur.
No break-in period. Should be workingbill

noiselessly out of the box.
Can you describe the sounds?McAndrus

This combination of a group should be flawless. The lower end Campy stuff, like Veloce, takes a while to break in completely but Chorus and Record? Nope.

What does it sound like? I can only think the derailleur might be misadjusted and rubbing the chain against a cog.
You can count on some cable stretch over the first ...Cima Coppi

couple of hundred miles, requiring minor tweeking of the barrell adjusters for both derailleur cables. After that, with proper cleaning of the bike and lubing of the chain, the drivetrain should run smooth as silk.

Good luck
