Is an inexpensive campy cassette a dream ? I need a 13-29(8 posts)

Is an inexpensive campy cassette a dream ? I need a 13-29PeterRider

... to replace a 11-23. Don't know anything about campy, first day I'm on that stuff, so I don't know the good addresses. Just know that I want the widest range that is availeble. Where should I buy ?

Thanks !

Pierre, either Ebay or wisecyclebuys.com will be your best price, wisecyclebuys ships free. I am riding a Campy record cassette and if you take the number of miles it takes to wear out by the fun I had doing it, it equals a very low cost per mile of pleasure.

There are some EBay stores selling cassettes for around $60 (chorus). labicicletta.com has the best price in Canada(and has a US price list) at $120 Cdn. My LBS asked for $240 Cdn. for a Chorus cassette! Outrageous!

Do they sell Miche parts in North American?
Makes 10speed a little more affordable.

Miche Supertype (Aluminum) 120€ (should equal US$)
Miche Primato (Steel) 50€

But according to my catalog the max. size is 13-26

A Chorus (or below) steel 10s in 13-29 should be easy to come by and not too expensive. All of the Campy 10s cassettes are interchangeable so you can use Centaur, etc. as well. I recently got a good price on a Veloce cassette and put it on instead of my usual Chorus - so far (700 miles) I can't really tell the difference. Don't forget to add links to the chain - it must be long enough to go into the large/large combo without destroying the derailleur. While Campy recommends a medium cage rear derailleur with this cassette, many report no problems with the standard derailleur. I find LaBicicletta to have good prices, but if you watch for sales, you can sometimes beat them.
isn't veloce 9s?colker

10s campy is expensive. expensive bike parts are immoral and condemmned by islam!! anyway i feel an idiot paying $100 on a cassette.
one route to take is convert shifters to 9s. change something in the mechanisms and cassettes are suddenly half tye price.
Mine is, but I belive Campy has 10s across the line (nm)Kerry
