Campy 10spd Driveline Wear/Slip???(3 posts)

Campy 10spd Driveline Wear/Slip???MrED
Aug 19, 2003 1:17 PM
I have about 6K on my original Campy Record Cranks and Cassette. I am on my 3rd chain, and have just completed a full tune-up including cables and housings. My Cranks have recently started to feel like they slip momentarily on every 2nd/3rd revolution in certain gears. It's almost like the chain slips and then grabs. It is a recurring problem but is only limited to select gears. Has my cassette finally worn out (This seems early at 6K...)? Any other thoughts????

Usually one or two of the middle cogs wears out first (the most frequently used). The slippage normally appears right after installing a new chain. The slippage typically only occurs under heavy load (when standing for instance). 6K is not very good life from a cassette, though. Could indicate insufficient cleaning and lubing.
