I like my set, but I didn't know the smallest chainring can't go below 30 teeth.
See my other post.


I got my set at planetcyclery.com. Good service, recommended.

They are sold out of the silver groupset, but still have a couple triple cranks.. I suggest you call them about availability.

NOTE--the athena cranks needed a specialty crank puller to remove from the bike. But I've heard that the newer model/version is self-extracting.

I think you might need Athena's replacement (Potenza) to get a self extracting crank bolt. Not sure though. I don't think there is a Potenza triple. (Yet?) The Veloce/Centaur/Athena crank puller issue is a PITA until you get set up for it. Your main options are:- never remove the crank; leave it up to a Campag approved bike shop; buy the Campag approved crank puller (cost is similar to the crank); modify an el cheapo puller to suit. Guess which option I chose? :) It took an evening of tinkering and filing to get a very cheap puller to do the job cleanly. It depends how handy you are.

You can buy it part wise at Ribble -- they have silver cranks, shifters, FD and RD. No brakes though. Check ebay for that. I saw a set of silver Potenza brakes that would probably work.

Or Veloce brakes, they come in silver. They're pretty good, dual pivot rear, light but no fancy skeleton design. And cheap as chips of course!
