Not crazy about the idea. Looks like a creaker that'd eat bearings.FORT-Cyclist said:It's in German but the pictures should be clear enough (or try www.systransoft.com)
I don't know if they've actually spent all that time researching a new method or just delaying... the CampyOnly entry from April 6, 2005 says they're getting help from FRM and the design will be similar to one already on the market from some company called NegMass.srf said:Campy's probably been putting years more thought into this than the other outboard bearing manufacturers
It has moved, can't find it at the moment, here's a picture at least: https://188.8.131.52/web/bike-sport-news//images/storypictures/19950.jpgteam_sheepshead said:Hey FORT,
The link in your post appears to go to the site's main news page. I'm a little slower than usual this morning, but I don't see a reference to the Campy cranks. Li'l help??
Well... assuming the rumor is true, the NegMass cranks ( exploded diagram here ) appear to have the axle integrated into the crank arm and the bearings slip over the respective sides.team_sheepshead said:Hey FORT,Also, asterisk, that NegMass crank appears to actually eliminate the need for a bottom bracket. Is Campy trying to accomplish this?
I love the multiple shift, and it's nice to have on both my 'fun' bike (Record) as well as my rain bike (Centaur).rossb said:... but with a lot less effort, apparently. (Although the multiple shift thing has always been one of the Campy cult's big selling points.)
Multiple shifting to the smaller cogs will be a prerogative of Record and Chorus only, and will be the only difference between Chorus and Centaur shifters, both CF.srf said:I love the multiple shift, and it's nice to have on both my 'fun' bike (Record) as well as my rain bike (Centaur).
