Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Campy on Cervelo soloist carbon

Would anyone feel this would look weird with campy chorus on a cervelo soloist carbon??? I havent riddin chorus or dura ace before but have ridden older ultegra and new veloce between those two the only difference to me is the feeling of the hoods

??? Campy never looks strange on anything - except maybe a department store bike. The chorus will feel a lot like the veloce, but will be smoother and lighter. The feel of the hoods is the same. Q factor is narrower with the chorus as well.

the regular aluminum soloist comes with centaur as its basic package, chrisvu05.

as for my oppinion....get the chorus! it will be very sweet and will fit the frame very nicely. do it. do it.

You know, from about more than 15 feet, nobody will know what it is or isn't.

Go ahead and hang Chorus on that Soloist Carbon. It's the right thing to do (outside of adoring it with Record).
