Campagnolo cassette type?

Postby Riggsy12 » Fri Feb 08, 2013 14:36 pm

I need a Campag cassette, online prices are around £50-£60 with the lockring...

Are the Miche and BBB campy cassettes ok? I read somewhere that someone didnt like how they merge with campy components?

What speed/ratio? You should find Veloce for £35 or less with lockring.

£31 on Wiggle for Veloce 12-25, maybe even less elsewhere. That's assuming you want 10 speed.

I've got a Miche cassette with a Veloce set up and was told by the LBS that if I had a Campag cassette it would shift smoother, I personally don't find anything wrong with the shifting with the Miche cassette but I would be tempted to go for a Veloce one in future.

There are no issues with compatibility and function of the Miche cassettes, I’ve used them for years

Good to here, all of the Campy cassettes I'm finding dont include a lock ring??? Why is this? Do you need a lock ring?

You need a lock ring. I thought they came supplied with Campag cassettes. My experience of Miche cassettes is that they are sh1te. Veloce 10 speed widely available for £30-£35 (just not with an 11 sprocket). 9 speed shouldn't cost any more, try Ribble, Parker International, Chainreaction, Geoffrey Butler etc.

I have to admit, I've just had a look and it seems the majority of 9 speed cassettes don't included lockrings. Weird.

I imagine you could beg/borrow/steal a lockring on here for pennies?

All the Centaur and Veloce cassettes (10 spd) I've bought have had a lockring included.

Cheap lockrings on eBay - no need to get a Campag one just Campag compatible.

Just read online you get a lockring when you buy Campy wheels? Is this true because Ive just ordered some Campagnolo Scirocco 35mm wheels from Ribble...

I have a miche cassette on my Campy Veloce Group and have no problems at all. Out on the road the changes are nice and slick.

Miche do a 9 speed version that sells for about £23. Though ive only seen them in 12-23 & 13-26

I have had one Miche cassette and found that the splines on the inner section of the largest sprocket (25t) were deformed when I came to remove it from pressures of use and fitting I guess. I did not have any shifting problems with it though. I would recommend staying with original campag cassettes, they are not that much more expensive and in my experience of using mainly veloce 9 & 10 spd (come with lockrings) both versions are excellent. No experience of BBB cassettes.

Good decision. I've ridden both Miche and Campag cassettes - the LBS couldn't source a Campag cassette in the ratios I wanted to fitted a Miche, saying that it was just as good. When I needed a second cassette (for a winter/training wheel), I sourced a Campag cassette with the same ratios (moving the Miche onto the winter wheel, keeping the more expensive Campag for the better weather).

The Miche shifts OK, though it can be a bit louder and clunkier than the Campag which shifts more smoothly. Doing it all again, I'd insist on Campag from the start. FWIW.
They use their cars as shopping baskets; they use their cars as overcoats.
