Record cassette - which cogs are ti?(9 posts)

Record cassette - which cogs are ti?Mink

I know that some of the cogs are titanium, but the Campy website doesn't tell you which ones they are. Can anyone advise? Also, I gather that ti cogs wear faster than steel. Anyone know how much faster?

My data is from 1998 with a Record 9 3/6 cassette. The 18 and 19 got lots of use, and wore about the same rate. Only thing is, the 18 was getting about 5X the mileage of the 19! My conclusion is that Ti cogs wear like butter.

The four largeset cogs are ti. If they last as long as they did on my Dura Ace cassettes, you can expect, at least 5,000 to 6,000 miles. I currently have about 1,500 on a steel/ti Record cassette and it's still going strong.
Both these answers are right!the bull

There are 2 kinds of "Record" one goes for 150 the other goes for a whopping 260 bucks!
The Chours full steel cassette goes for 80 bucks.
Are your prices retail? Or wholesale?russw19

Bull, your prices are WAY TOO LOW!

That's what those cassettes go for wholesale. And even at wholesale, $80 for a chorus cassette is low. More like $90 right now. If you can get these cassettes at this price, it's no wonder bike shops get p-o'd so bad over internet sales. I just looked these prices up on Quality's website (which tends to be a bit high for Campy prices, but still....) and the prices you list are what they are wholesaling Campy cassettes for.

Just an FYI...

Well, like I said.. wholesale at QBP is about the same. I guess I need to see what Sinclair Lewis has it for.. they tend to be the cheapest for Campy parts.
