What is the Shimano equivalent of Campagnolo Chorus?
Campag reckons that Chorus is roughly the equivalent of Shimano Dura-Ace, with Record and Super Record in a class of their own.
Is Campagnolo going out of business?
No, Campagnolo isn’t disappearing. It’s true that most new bikes are coming equipped with Shimano or SRAM, but I hope that doesn’t mean that Campag are disappearing.
When did Campagnolo Chorus come out?
In 2008, Campagnolo introduced 11-speed drivetrains with Super Record, Record, and Chorus groupsets. Campagnolo has released an electronic version of its drivetrain.
What wheels are compatible with Campagnolo?
Yes. Campagnolo wheels are compatible with both Shimano and SRAM components. In order to use Campagnolo wheels with any drivetrain on the market, Campagnolo produces two kinds of freewheel bodies: one specific for Campagnolo drivetrains (from 9 to 11 speeds) and one for non-Campagnolo drivetrains (from 9 to 11 speeds).
Is Campagnolo Chorus better than Shimano Ultegra?
From what I can tell, they both are excellent. At any rate. Ultegra R8000 set can be had for ~$350 less than Chorus, but is a smidge heavier.
Is Shimano Deore better than Alivio?
For this purpose, Shimano Alivio is incredible, offering brand new components to freshen up older spec bikes without breaking the bank. The parts are cheap and are designed to be affordable. Shimano Deore, on the other hand, is targeted far more to the average entry-level to intermediate rider.
Is Campagnolo still made in Italy?

Why is Campagnolo less popular?
Many have attributed Campagnolo’s decreasing mainstream visibility to the fact that it’s more expensive than what Shimano and SRAM offer, but as is often the case, the full story is a bit more complicated.
Is Campagnolo any good?
Campagnolo is the groupset of choice for the cycling connoisseur. That’s not to say it functions better than any other brand of groupset, rather that it has a history and indefinable desirability that the others just can’t match. It certainly has its critics.
Which Campagnolo groupset is best?
Campagnolo groupsets The top three groupsets – Super Record, Record and Chorus – come in both mechanical and electronic versions. Campagnolo calls its electronic systems EPS: Electronic Power Shift. Super-Record EPS is used by UCI WorldTeams UAE Team Emirates, Movistar and Lotto-Soudal.
How do you date Campagnolo parts?
Some Campagnolo parts can be dated by codes or patent dates. For example, the Nuovo Record rear derailleur has a patent date that corresponds to its manufacturing date starting in 1970 (example “PAT. 70”); marked “PATENT” without a date before 1970.

- Hold non-drive side cone with cone wrench. Loosen and remove drive side locknut.

Can I put a Shimano cassette on a Campagnolo hub?
SRAM’s cassettes and chains are compatible with all of Shimano’s groupsets, and vice versa. The latter explains why a Shimano or SRAM cassette cannot be fitted to a wheel with a Campagnolo freehub body (and vice versa, save for Edco’s unique freehub body design, which will accommodate both).
