Campagnolo Record-10 CT Compact Front Derailleur

3/5 (3 Reviews)
MSRP : $120.00

Product Description

A Campagnolo Record CT Compact Carbon crankset in order to take advantage of its unique gearing, this is the only other special component you'll need to buy. The inner plate of the Record-10 CT Compact Front Derailleur looks almost identical to that of a Record Triple front derailleur, while the outer plate has the height of a Double but a steeper curvature to it that nicely matches the tighter circumference of the smaller outer chainring.

Strengths:    Light, good looking, and works fine (before failing completely).

Weaknesses:    Bad design using carbon fiber for cage. Very little weight advantage over aluminum Chorus version.

Bottom Line:   
This is simple: stay away from this front derailleur! Used it for only 6 months (less than 3000 miles) because it failed right through the carbon fiber cage on a ride. I've used Campy almost exclusively for 20 years and I've never had any component fail.....until this one. I switched to the Chorus version and am convinced that it is a much better choice than going back to the Record version.

Strengths:    light and looks kool

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
This derailer is great. I have fsa compact crank and the regular ultegra always lost the chain. Now I canshift down even going up hill. It works great with the Ultegra shifters.

Strengths:    Looks nice, lightweight

Weaknesses:    Clamp cuts into seat tube. Shift quality not perfect: can refuse to drop onto small ring under load and can take several revolutions to get onto large ring.

Bottom Line:   
Front derailleurs have a pretty simple job - push the chain on and off chainrings. The devil is in the details, especially for compact cranksets where the tooth spacing somewhat large like my 50-34.

Frankly, I find the details poorly executed here. My Pinarello requires a clamp-on front derailleur and the hinge on this one cuts into the seat tube, I've had to pad it to avoid more damage to paint and metal.

Shifting quality is not so great. It could be the Ergopower lever, but even after precisely positioning the derailleur according to the manual, it still occasionally won't go from large ring to small under moderate load, and going from small to large will sometimes lead to "freewheeling" for a couple of pedal revs as the chain is between rings. Not at all what I expect from Campy Record.
