I loved my 595 and I race a lot of crits here in the Lou. With that having been stated, I wouldn't mind something a little more comfortable over long road races - so which one would you reccommend the 586 or the 695? I am not a sprinter and I weigh 150 lbs. BTW, will my new Super Record cranks be compatible w/ the 659 set-up?
Thanks,
V

Oh come on!
If you can afford a 695 AND would race it in a crit/road race, then surely there is only one answer..............
GET THE 695 and then tell us all about it:D

i believe adaptor cups can be fitted to the BB and then it will fit any crank but as it comes with the ZED crank and that ll be lighter/stiffer(?) why bother?

If I were your size and raced it would be a no brainer for the 695. No, your campy crank will not work with the bike, I was told at the show that to do this I would have to buy FSA11 chain rings in order to use the rest of Campy SR 11 grouppo.

Why not have a look around see if you can find a 585 before they are sold out heard the 695 is a pure race machine
and the 585 is stiffer than the 586 and more comfortable
