Ribble has 10% off on Campag components right now (unfortunately, not groupsets). At least that will help offset the cost some more.


Pretty excited to try out Campagnolo after a lifetime of...

Just a quick question: I know other Campag groups need special tools (specifically for BB's/cranks). Does the Potenza groupset need specific tools for install?

I typically run ~70-72 GI for paved centuries, but for gravel, I am down in the mid-low 60's (typically 61-63 GI). Dirt takes a toll on you, and it saps power. I'd gear down, personally.

Some hardcore MTBers still use OP wit 2.2" tires (although that's a bit extreme). I did 40 miles of gravel and singletrack on 700x40 MSO's last weekend and had a blast. No issues

I have them mounted to Open Pro's. So pretty much you can use any rim. However, I'd prefer something 23-25mm wide (HED, H+, etc)
