    I know this is the official campagnolo line, but I'm not sold on it. I put a potenza mech and 11-32 cassette on my old man's pre 2014 chorus group, and it worked just fine. Also the 11s tt shifter didn't change between the model iterations.
    Did the cable pull ratios change? If so why didn't the tt shifter change?

    The down shifter is a 'C' which symbolises receptiveness. Openness, receiving. It is in relation to the horseshoe, the 'other half' or pockets.
    This relates to gravel in being 'open' for new experiences, new friends, and new custom bar bags.

    I'm forced to watch the bloody horse jumping. The horses aren't even from the countries they are representing.

    Got one of these recently- so good to be able to not worry about leaving a record running. A bit fiddly to setup initally but works really well.

    Compass/Rene herse are smooth as a television shaving ad. Pricey and thin though.

    If they have a plastic bushing it might have a flat spot or something, I've had this happen with multiple sets of mtb flats, both cheap plastic ones and dmrs.
    My solution was to buy pedals without bushings.

    Lol no, I've been using campagnolo since 2010 or so. That's just a bonus.
    It works really well. The braking is better than my friends with sram. The new thumblever is a great design. I fucked up the install and didn't tighten the rear hose enough at the caliper, and the hose popped out while doing a showoff skid. So I had to bleed it and it was easy and works great.
    I wish you could fit smaller than a 38 on the crank, apart from that it's a really good groupset 👍

    Nah it wasn't a silly cliche like that. It's proving very hard to Google though.
    Tough times in groupset buyer land, it's been hard for me too.
