    Alternative to Campy cassette

    With the insane prices of campy cassettes, does anyone know of alternative brands of cassettes compatible with Campy 10? I've noticed a few ads here and there for Miche cassettes that fit the bill but rarely see that product advertised. Any thoughts appreciated?

    not any good alternatives...

    If you want to save money, just get a Veloce cassette and shop around for the best price. Miche products are cheap and you get what you pay for.

    Here's a Veloce 10 for $65 and a Veloce 9 for $30.

    Also try: http://www.labicicletta.com/edatcat/...gory=Cassettes

    I still don't the big concern. A properly maintained cassette should last 10,000 miles and some folks get much more. Of course, others who ride in the rain a lot and lube infrequently don't get half the mileage.

    With my habit of trading bikes every 2-3 years I've never worn out a cassette.

    11-23 in veloce?

    I was looking for a 11-23, since I run a FSA compact crank. Looks like maybe Veloce does not have a 11-23?

    No 11 in 10 sp Veloce. I just checked Campy's site.

    Man, still over $100 now for Centaur: http://www.nashbar.com/profile.cfm?c...eid=&pagename=

    Ebay is the best bet for cheaper Campy cassettes right now.

    To repeat what I said a few days ago - doesn't help me any - but for you guys south of the 49th


    Try a Canadian dealer where you will get the benefit of the Us dollar exchange ( I don't get that break).

    Bicicletta in Toronto ( This is the one at Bicicletta.com)

    Bicicletta in Vancouver ( different store and company)

    or Campione cycles in VAncouver (Cramerotti.com)

    I know Cramerotti doesn't have his store catalogue on line but you can phone him. He imports his own stuff from Italy so no wholesaleer - might be cheaper to start with.

    FWIW both Bicicletta in Toronto and Vancouver were formerly his stores - sold them.
