  • Ha! Still true today.

  • The truth doesn't change! I know all the arguments, and I agree with them. But i wanted to go for flat bars and a modern set up and didn't have the cash for another set of bars in 26mm. I looked at the factory 5 titan but didn't have the money for that. Perhaps in the future I'll change. Another thing was I wanted the stem as flat as possible. The x2 is pretty slim and the right angle. But I don't need to explain myself.... I fully back myself and know my own mind. No doubts here.. nono.

  • Any advice on which 10 speed campag compatible cassette to go for? I'm tempted to go with the veloce or miche primato from somewhere like cycle clinic for now then save up for something better.

  • I've had more reliable/consistent shifting from Campagnolo cassettes compared to Miche cassettes. But also had some Miche cassette work just fine so perhaps it's hit and miss. Perhaps it's just my spannering.

    I also have a lightly used 12-25 Centaur cassette for sale here.

  • I've had a pretty good experience with the miche primato, granted it was on a 2011 version of Veloce, so not super high end, but the shifting was flawless for a good 3-4 thousands of Kms.

    on offer at condor for £30, granted it's a 14-25, however.­/gears-drivetrain/products/miche-primato­-10-speed-cassette-campagnolo-compatible­

  • @Señor_Bear on a bit of a budget so will keep my eyes peeled for any 1 inch threaded from those manufacturers I think then go new bearings? or would you go new? And then whatever stem I get, just gotta check if it is 25.4 or 26 before buying bars?
