You will like the smooth shifting, reliability, and attractive finish found on Chorus. It's a very good group that is only a step down from Record because of the lack of carbon fibre and titanium on some of the components. The group is every bit as good as Record and D/A. Everyone I know who rides Chorus loves it, and does not even find the need to upgrade to Record.

Enjoy it, and don't give it a second thought.


DISCLAIMER: I, in no way, am stating the Shimano components are inferior to Campy. This is not intended to start another conflict between Shimano and Campy. Both companies produce world class equipment that has been refined over the years. In the end, personal preference should dictate which company to purchase from.
What a silly question ;)JohnG

You sir will soon be in bike Heaven! Colnago MXL and Campy, it just doesn't get much better than that!

I went from a Shimano 600 (on my old bike) to Campy Chorus (on my new bike).

The Shimano shifts slightly smoother, but in no way does that mean the Chorus doesn't shift smoothly. Both do an excellent job.

You will not be dissappointed.

FWIW, the Chorus is better looking. The Italians pay attention to detail.
No, should have got a Schwinn Cruiser. ;-)MB1

Talk about bang for the buck.

Now, get out and ride.
