a full chorus group and a full record group?

I think the hubs are nearly identical so with or w/o shouldnt matter.

this is only for the central components (no hubs, headset, or seatpost), judging from claimed weights on Record hubs have grease ports and a ti pawl carrier, the latter of which saves 10 whole grams from Chorus (but the grease ports are convenient). I would get Chorus (unless I had the dough). do we have another Campy convert? :)

just a thought, but you can get Centaur groups for $450weiwentg

or thereabouts. option B is just put Campy shifters and a rear derailleur on the bike, and use a conversion cassette. the Wheels cassettes look horribly expensive, but when you think about it, they're not more expensive than Record. Campy compatible wheels like open pros with centaur or chorus hubs can be had for not exorbitant prices on ebay. Centaur cassettes are (according to Campy) the same steel as Chorus, with a different carrier system, and only a few (we're talking tens of grams) grams more. the above is what happened to me (I also ditched the Shimano front derailleur, although they have been known to work).
