I just bought 2005 Bianchi Cross Veloce cyclocross demo bike
-Campy Veloce groupo for the most part
-50/34 FSA crankset
-Came w/ 2005 Campy Vento wheelset w/ CX 700x35 tires.
This will be my outdoor training/winter/gravel road bike.
Separately, just bought 2006 Ventos w/ road tires (Michelin Pro2 race) and matching 12-25 cassette.
Plan to Switch back/forth between wheelsets (Road and CX).
1) Should all these wheels be compatible between my 2 outdoor bikes since both are
-Campy (XV=Veloce, Tarmac=Chorus)
-50/34 FSA (XV=Gossamer/Tarmac=SLK)
-XV 2 cassettes are both 12-25
-Tarmac have Easton Ascent II's (1 rear w/ 12-25, 2nd rear w/ 11-23)
2) Do you think I'll be able to use same chain for 11-23 and 12-25?
3) Considering buying 13-29 Campy cassette (Chorus, Centaur or Veloce) for occasional use on either bike.
If do this, know will need separate chain that would use w/ just the 13-29. What Rear derailleur would you rec, assuming cannot use short cage that have on Tarmac. Have to check on X-Veloce to see what RD it has. IFFF it has longer RD, than 13-29 might fit right on there??
4) If get Campy 13-29 cassette, which one do you rec, Chorus, Centaur or Veloce? see below for good prices from Italy.
