Why so sad?
I guess it's not clear why this is a problem. After a very short period of use, you likely would only see a very minor difference in surface appearance. If the cassette was to wear more quickly or shift poorly, then this might be an issue. Otherwise, it seems like it's more about how it looks before it's ever installed.High Gear said:I just got in my Veloce cassette and was disappointed to see that it was not chrome plated as I thought. It is galvanized. In the past I always had good luck with chrome plated cassettes regarding wear. Can anyone tell me if I should spring another $10 for the Centaur that is chrome plated vs. galvanized?
