    Google Miche cassette, youu will find e-bikestop sells it for $49. But don't buy it there cause their shipping is like $15. Instead copy the link, go to Jenson & price match it. Shipping will end up being $7-$8 instead.

    Now for the cassette... The only reason I buy a Miche is for the 12-27 configuration. All the other options are available in campy cassettes, like Veloce or Centaur. The shifting of a Miche is ok at best, nothing I would want to race on. The cogs are not ramped aggressively so shifting is a little slow 7 clunky compared to a real Campy cassette. I like the 12-27 for winter riding where a 27 is nice to spin up the long climbs here.

    For good campy prices, stick with a Veloce from probikekit.com plus they have free shipping.

    I think the Veloce is lighter than the Miche as well as having better shifting.

    Miche is known for cheap, sometimes crappy parts. Opinions vary on how well these cogs shift. I'd spend $10 more and get Campy Veloce cogs at Lickton's.

    Buy the Campy...

    I tried one on Shimano 10v and it was absolute shite. They are VERY heavy too...

    You're looking at the wrong cassettes. Veloce shifts just as well as Record, and weighs only a few grams more. $70.
