- Campag, mine hasn't 'worn in' at all.
“Campag wears in” is a myth – the kind of thing perpetuated by ignorant fools who think steel frames wear out…
It is unusual to have a cassette wear out before a chaing – my campag ones have lasted a lot more than 2-3k, even in very wet/crap conditions. Are the teeth obviously worn? Are you sure it’s the cassette and not a stiff link or similar or even the chainrings?Posted 5 years ago
That’s the odd thing, I’ve held it up to a new one, and no, they don’t look worn, no obvious bends, nics out of the teeth, and I’ve put in another wheel with a new cassette on and it indexes just fine. I was so certain that it couldn’t be worn that I thought it must of been the free hub initially.
Is there any scientific way of checking for wear, I’ve not come across a tool for this,Posted 5 years ago
I’ve been having a few skipping issues with the cassette on my road bike. The 3rd and 4th largest ones. It’s 10 speed record. The groupset hasn’t got masses of miles on it, maybe 2/3k only used in the dry and taken good care of. The chain is just on .5 on the park stretched chain ometer, measured against a new chain, there’s only 2mm in it over the length.
Has anyone else had a cassette where before the chains worn out? On my training bike I’ve changed the chain 3 times and still on the same cassette, which is a ti dura ace one. And it’s done maybe 12/15k in any weather.
Bit miffed, as they ain’t getting any cheaper.Posted 5 years agobarnMember
Would help to understand more about the skip: is the chain wanting to shift up the cassette i.e. move to a bigger cog?
Or is chain skipping down i.e. slipping to a smaller cog?
If the former, try adjusting cable tension.
If the latter, try a new gear cable (inner and outer).
A new cable sorted a similar issue for me on a Veloce 10-speed group with similar mileage.Posted 5 years ago
