Campy Record / Chorus / Athena aero pedals?

I would really like a set. What are the differences and why are they so expensive on eBay? Does anyone have a spare set they'd get rid of for a fair price?

Also, how many posts do you need to post a for sale ad on the C&V sale board?

They are expensive because they are old Campagnolo parts.

The differences are mainly in weight. If you hold the C-record up next to the Chorus, the body the Chorus is thicker and less sleek than the C-record. Same for comparison to the Athena. I have a Chorus on one bike and a Record on the other, and they both run similarly well. I keep the Record on it's bike because that bike is nearly all aluminum Campy 10-speed Record.

I have a set of Campagnolo Croce D'aune pista pedals and they are great for touring and appearance. The Record C pista , Croce D'aune pista pedals are the most sought after for their polish and graceful design. That's why they are expensive.

I agree about clipless. I bought my bike for mostly fair weather commuting, so I'd rather not have to bring a pair of shoes to change into. PM me and let's try to work something out on the pedals.

I read on velobase that the difference between Athena and Chorus is the pedal axle. They have different part numbers, so the axles are different. I would just guess the Chorus axles are lighter than Athena.

I have a pair of these pedals and don't know if they're Chorus or Athena. I have another pair that look almost exactly like 'em, but the outer plate doesn't curve around to accept the strap. I think those are Victory. To my eye, Victory looks just like C-Record, but the back plate isn't removable via screws like C-Record.

Unlike old Record pedals where you can get a hub cone wrench on the pedal cone, you cannot do that with either of my two sets. I don't know if they're easy to overhaul otherwise, so I haven't done it. I just pushed more grease in there.

Here's a good link with lots of pics to help identify Campagnolo aero pedals. So for C-record I found it a useful tip to go foraging for mushroom-shaped plate to attach the toe-clip...not that I ever found any that I could afford.

Campagnolo aero pedals, the complete list - Le Cycleur

There is also a good guide to identifying the various types of Campag levers on that site too.

Thanks, man. From that page, I found this quote interesting:

"Athena pedals are identical to Chorus pedals! But you had to pay a bit more for a different box."

My android phone's Chrome browser wouldn't let me click your posted link, but when I google searched for the title, it came right up.

Yeah, Ben.

Here are the Athena/Chorus pedals I bought nos for $30 several years ago. I really like them with the slipper-like, old-school japanese running shoes I wear.





And here are the Victory pedals from the Trek donor I just bought.



​​​​​​As of yesterday, these are now on my Miyata. They are missing the original hardware that attaches the clip. Here's a pic of the hardware:



I could purchase the hardware set on ebay for $45, but I'll look for a less expensive solution. Maybe @rootboy can manufacture us some.

S​​​​​o far, the Victorys (or is it Victories?) feel a little weird/different than the Chorus ones due to the lack of that curved piece. But they should work out. I haven't ridden them much yet. So far, my foot can't tell that the hardware is missing, "which is nice."

No, unlike Victory, the backing plate on C-Record uses screws.

I said, "slipper-like"!

What's Puyallup's own @Andycapp doing these days? I just read an old thread where he manufactures these little aluminum plates for my missing Victory pedals.

"Home" made Chorus toe clip thingies

In related news, the verdict is in on these Victory pedals. No, they're not as comfortable for me as the Chorus. But I can do under 50mi on 'em, no prob.
