Campagnolo mechanic

My bike needed more service than I thought.

1. Campagnolo is phased out of 11spd now. So my choices for 11spd parts is limited.
2. I'm replacing: front derailleur. Fine. Ends up it has to be Chorus as Super Record is not available. Oh well - yes please put that on.
3. So I'll get a new Record chain, oh and a Chorus cassette while at it too. Great thanks!

4. Phone call: Hey your chain rings are worn to old chain, so we'll need to replace them too. Fuck. They only have 52 tooth + 39tooth. Bugger - yes please add the 52 tooth. (I've only ever had 53tooth front ring).

Oh well, after this hopefully doesn't need anything for a couple of years....... :cool:

Sucker for punishment. At least the 11 SPD Shimano is easily available. Even 10 SPD is not too hard to get.

Yeh, a bit of sucker I guess.:) Including the two new Pirelli tyres I just chucked on, it's going to be pushing $1,000 all up for this service - and it's a Downgrade to boot.

But it has been 3 years since any work was done on it, so its not too bad.

How old is the bike? If you've got an alloy steerer fork it might be worth giving that a check as well. Also how is the brake track looking on the rims?

Bike is good otherwise. Steerer is carbon. Rims are Bora One 50mm (carbon) and four years old - no wear.

Parts have been upgraded regularly, and well maintained.
