Campy - keep 10s or go 11?

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

Your 2010 Veloce shifters were the last year that Veloce and Centaur still had that capability. Total Cycling had some NOS ones last year for $125 (as very nicely pointed out by Drew Echartt), and I semi-regret not pouncing.

Shimano = Campy = SRAM

20spd = 22spd

@RollCNY, your point illustrates the point I was making regarding the challenge of narrowing the chain even a few fractions of a mm. It also points out why Campagnolo introduced their chain tool for the 11spd chain.

Over the years I've been involved in testing chains from KMC and Daya focused on materials, finish and construction I've come to appreciate that there is a tidy bit of engineering involved in a seemingly simple product. Campagnolo seems to be one up on the competition here.

@CL4' I agree that 12spd seems possible IF Shimano can get the chain right and IF OLD Goes to 135mm. Then it becomes a conflict between using the extra 5mm for either a cog or a disc rotor. I know the math suggests that both should be possible with a narrower chain but there are other considerations like chain line and the clearance between the 11T cog and the chain stay. I'm not saying it isn't possible just that these also need to be addressed.

If OLD does goe to 135mm there is plenty of room for Campagnolo to go 12spd AND decrease wheel dish putting them one up on Shimano, again.

Time will indeed tell.
