First ride today after assembling my new Bianchi Impulso with a Campagnolo Veloce groupset..amazing.
LOVE THE BIKE, but only managed 20 minutes before the dropout mounting for the rear derailleur snapped off on a very slow incline where I shifted all the way up on the biggest cog on the rear, BANG! and the whole rear derailleur followed the cog up clockwise before stopping at 12 o'clock, twisting a couple of chain rings, chipping the paint on the chainstay and damaging a spoke.
As this is out of the box I'm trying to get it on warranty, but am worrying about the Veloce now. Should I upgrade the rear mech to a Centaur which seems to be the most expensive 10speed from Campy ?
Am I expected to do a full gear adjustment when assembling the bike, i.e. is it my fault ?? Surely not.
