How does a Veloce crankset differ from a Record ?

Besides the price?

Grams, sexiness, carbon fiber. Depending on what you're doing, these might make a little difference, or none at all.

Veloce: slightly heavier, finish nice but not super, stamped rather than machined chainrings, alloy not carbon, maybe not as stiff. Both Record and Veloce are eminently usable. One important difference is that Veloce/Centaur require one style of bottom bracket while Chorus/Record require another. See the Campy website for details.

Carbon fiber not wihtstanding, Record has a better finish and is lighter. The spider on a Record may be a bit stiffer but not much. The main reason the Record is lighter is that it uses the crank arm as one of the sipder's legs. Veloce has 5 legs and the Record has 4 plus the actual crank arm. Record/Chorus use 102mm BB Centaur & below use a 111mm for doubles. As far as the stamped chainrings are concerned, see Branford Bike for details. They say after a break in that Veloce is just as good as Record for a lot less money. http://www.branfordbike.com/chains/chains1.html
