9 sp campag cogset by MICHE

Has anyone used, or is using, the 9sp Campagnolo cogsets offered by Miche?
They seem a slight bit lower priced than the campagnolo 9 sp cogsets, but they are not riveted together on a carrier for the larger diameter cogs.
My concern is that the individually installed Miche cogs will notch the aluminum cassete body of my campagnolo hub, as happened on my '95 athena road hub with a steel cassete body (from riding on the road). I dont really remember what model year campagnolo hub it is, but its the old bell-shaped, steel axle hub, and an aluminum cassette carrier w/ the 4 main grooves.

Stay away from Miche Cassettes. Better off buying a Veloce cogset. The cogs are stamped and aren't that great of quality. Much like the really low end sram cassettes. I also broke a tooth on the 16t cog and I wasn't riding that hard.

you only broke one tooth? i've been riding a ten speed miche 12-25, from the end of september until the weekend before thanksgiving, and EVERY COG EXCEPT THE 23 AND 25 HAD BROKEN TEETH.

i dont consider myself a powerhouse either, and i completely clean my drivetrain twice a week, but the 15t lost over half of its teeth, and the 12t lost two. total trainwreck.

you'll save yourself some money in the long run by getting a capagnolo made cassette now.

i suppose that's the difference - commuting plus practices and racing, i've probably been doing closer to 80 a week.

yeah..I'm probably going to buy a campag cassette then...I just never came accross it whan I used to work in a shop...had no clue that they made them, and I didn't know if they were any good.

I'm getting the feeling that campag is the safest choice.
