Campy SRM

I have the Pro model but am thinking of adding a second carbon high-end model. Is FSA the only way to go for Campy users here? Can someone post a link and perhaps some anecdotal advice? Think Diablo has some experience here.

Just getting tired of using the crank extractor, changing the shifting, etc. every time I swap out the SRM. Plus I want carbon for my race bikes!

Is SRM and Comp. Cyclist the only way to go here BTW?

Also curious if a DA SRM would work with a Campy shift system/BB?

I see no reason any 10spd chain ring will not work with any other chain ring.

You can run campy fd/ sram or shimano crank or the other way.

BB wouldn't be compatable

Go Ergomo and campy carbon square taper, that'd be cool.

I have the FSA model and it works great. I also like the convertability of the FSA from standard to compact.

I've gone down the Ergomo path....don't do it. I'm not even sure they are still in business.

I wouldn't worry about what cranks you are using. I'm picking up a Quarq Cinco when they are back in stock and getting the Sram version. A crank is a crank more or less

I've run the DA pro on my campy stuff, no problems at all.... that is of course assuming you are running 10 speed and not eleven.

Absolutely. In fact I run Campy shifters with a DA front derailleur and a DA SRM. Works great with the bigger chainrings (54/55/56) I run on the TT rig.
