Campagnolo Chorus 11
The draw: Exclusivity
The history behind Campagnolo is deeper than Shimano and SRAM combined. Producing bike components for 81 years has created a mystique around the brand and a loyal following of cyclists is committed to this niche company. Shift action of the group feels uniquely solid and snappy. Front shifts occasionally take more coaxing with this kit, however. Membership in the Campagnolo family comes at a cost: upfront price and maintenance expense of this kit is higher than competing groups.
