    Campy experience

    I just want to ask others who have used Campy for at least a few years about their experiences. My story: When I was still on 9 speed (about 7 years ago) I was using Dura Ace 9....pretty much no problems, it was a very very robust group. Even neglecting regular maintenance and having a filthy...

    dt revolutions?

    I'm now considering building up a set of wheels for some training (probably not every-day wheels) and as a back-up set of race wheels. I'm thinking of dt Swiss 1.1 rims and record hubs, but I'm not sure about which spokes I should go with. Are there any benefits to going with DT revs as opposed...
