Colnago, Chorus and Trust(1 post)

Colnago, Chorus and TrustRocco's Big Ride 2001
May 12, 2001 5:30 AM
Well I bought my Colnago Suprimissio, it is the precursor to the Xlite and Technos.My new ride came with 1999 Chorus which I had the dealer swap over from a DeRossa LBD was selling too. The Colnago had Athena on it prior to the swap. All was swapped except the headset, which still says Athena. The mechanic told me it was the same head set as the Chorus.
1) Is that true, are they the same except different name stamp?
2) He told me the bottom bracket was a Record with BB/cup as opposed to cartridge, is this good, bad or just a taste preference?
3)For the type of riding I am planning to do, centuries and hills, is a 13 - 27 cassette a good idea?
4) He put 858's on for 0$, good enough?

Thanks for the help in advance. Rocco
