Made the switch to Campagnolo, LBS quotes of $200-$250 to fit groupset, so decided to buy the tools and do it myself.

Anybody know an inexpensive, Campagnolo compatible 10sp chain link tool?

Do you mean a chain link tool, or a campy specific chain whip?

Pairing these with some NoTubes Crest rims & DT Swiss Super Comp black spokes and nipples.

Chain link.

edit: I think my old generic one will do.

Let me know how you like it. I'm a bit late at posting so I've had a few ride with it. I think it's pretty awesome. Simple to use, customizable and very informative GPS info. :)

$39.00.... I just had my fitting today and installed this, now if the bloody Toronto winter would piss off, I could ride my bike and actually use it.

Cheers,

Brian J.

I launched a bottle a couple of weeks ago using those cages, first one I've lost in years.

Really? They hold my Camelbak Podiums nice and snug - haven't lost one from any of the [sarcasm]smooth as glass[/sarcasm] NYC streets.

Yep, I was going down a rough downhill at a somewhat high rate of speed and it went sailing. It very well could have been a one time thing since I have done that descent a few times since with no issues.

Plus one. Those have worked great for me, even on crappy roads.

Probably was a one time thing, it can happen with any cage. I'm still using them on both of my road bikes so it didn't upset me too much.

I really like it and use it both for road and mountain biking. I've also owned the 305 and 705.

I bought this Focus Mares CX bike recently and actually have been riding it on the road a good bit, so I decided to get a few road bike parts on the cheap.

Easton Circuit Wheelset (only $199 from Bonktown)
Ultegra 12-25 Cassette
Maxxis Re-Fuse Tires, 700x25
105 Pedals
Fizik Bar Tape

Loving this bike so far. :thumb:
