    Strengths:    None

    Weaknesses:    Failed catastrophically, damaging both bikes.

    Bottom Line:   
    I bought two of these rear dérailleurs for each of my road bikes in 1998. They both failed catastrophically in 2002. I divide my riding over four bikes, so these were really only about two seasons old at worst. One wrapped itself in the rear wheel spokes, ruining the wheel. The other locked up and bent the rear hanger so that the bike was no longer ridable. I've ridden Campy since 1973, and I've never had anything like this happen. And on TWO of them! Now I only ride Shimano.

    Strengths:    Light, gorgeous and works flawlessly.

    Weaknesses:    Some say price but you get what you pay for.

    Bottom Line:   
    I have over 15K miles on one of these and haven't had to touch it. Just like every other Chorus component I have had, it looks great and works even better.

    Strengths:    Beautiful polished aluminum, Italian craftsmanship, perfect shifts every time, durability!

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    Campy stuff looks better, lasts longer, and works better than any Shimano product. I know, I work on the stuff all the time! Shimano makes good stuff, Campy makes better stuff!

    Strengths:    Crisp shifting, elegant lines.

    Weaknesses:    Developed a hairline crack along the hanger. I didn't crash and can't remember ever bumping it, seems to have developed on its own.

    Bottom Line:   
    The derailleur is a couple of years old and is starting to miss a shift or two. The crack is a bummer too. I'll keep riding until it breaks, but I expected more for the $$$$

    The Shimano 600 Ultegra I had on my own bike lasted for years without a fault.

    Chorus 11 Controls with Ultra 6800 Derailleurs?

    New Veloce vs. old Chorus? WWMD?

    I crashed and ruined a 10 speed Carbon Chorus med. cage rear derailleur. I think it's the last 10 speed carbon Chorus Campagnolo made. The only carbon is the face plate with 'chorus' written on it. The question is, do the new Veloce rear derailleurs work better than the old Chorus? If so I'll go ... Read More »
