Chorus vs. Record crankset(6 posts)

Chorus vs. Record cranksetBenR

Is there a noticable difference in stiffness between the Record (alloy, not carbon) and Chorus cranksets? I'm 170lbs, strong time trialist but not a sprinter. The weight loss and cool looks alone isn't worth the price difference in my opinion (just like a lot of other record parts).

I'm half-seriously considering an upgrade from my Chorus crank - should I go for the Record or save my money? Anyone know of a good price or want to work out some kind of deal/trade? I'm looking for 172.5mm 10 speed. Thanks for any comments.

Where you're not focused on sprinting but rather doing TTs (smooth power output) you likely would not notice the difference.

I weigh 195 and the Chorus seems plenty stiff for me.

check with Scott Mosko at for a good price on Campy cranks.

I think the price difference is only around $50. Way worth it.

Thanks for the Advice!BenR
