Our Take: vs. 11-Speed the last years, Campagnolo. and SRAM moved to and the is becoming main stream. when we’ve 11-speed bikes, of you had some and concerns the new To answer of them, found one our employees has been both 10- 11-speed groupsets a while.

his take things. I’ve riding both Campagnolo and SRAM  for years now, I switch the two enough to able to you there some definite between 10- 11-speed drivetrains. adding an cog means have more ratios to from which make your more efficient.

But I’ve asked to the 6 common questions get about so here goes. (And remember, this a Campy SRAM article 10-speed vs.

Is 11-speed durable? Answer:  not really difference. I have about miles on 11-speed cassette chain, and is worn yet. I have yet break an chain while

So far Campagnolo chains cassettes have about as as my 10-speed ones. guess the cogs and make people but I had any so far. haven’t ridden new Shimano but I’ve that their PTFE chain actually makes chains stronger their 10-speed . Isn’t shifting compromised?

Answer: Shifting isn’t really by the of another Aside from different shifter I have very little, any, difference performance between and 11. anything the shifting feels and crisper 10-speed. My bikes do to be into the a little often (about every two for some rear derailleur especially after mileage weeks, it’s a 2-minute tension adjustment, that’s it. you need wheels?

Answer: Contrary to you read many bike boards, you need a rear wheel the reason that the wider cassettes a wider than a wheel. If look at 11-speed wheel. drive-side spokes nearly in-line the hub

I have a set Mavic and set of wheels from to 11-speed but it a pretty process and conversion required wheel to re-dished and And, of the manufacturer guarantee how wheel will with a freehub. Your bet is get a wheel . the exception Mavic wheels an M10 body, which should work Shimano 11-speed you leave the Mavic Are 11-speed less durable? Maybe, but kind of really depends your riding

For folks really beat on their you might a difference. not very on wheels, rarely need have them but I have a of 11- wheels that to be more often their 10- counterparts. However, also have set that gone almost years without to see truing stand, it’s hard tell. Is worth it?

That all In my I love the extra th gear. yes, I do notice it’s not when I back to 10-speed bike. biggest benefit me is the shifting smoother and progressive, since are fewer jumps in size. I have to two different around anymore for the riding, one climbing), since can still an 11-25 but with 27t or cog tacked that makes perfect for as well.

11-speed cassettes offer a range of options that it easier find that cadence in variety of whereas when switch back a 10-speed e, I struggle to the right Why upgrade? they just to 12-speeds Answer: Don’t me on but no, don’t think will go 12-speeds any soon.

I know has a gruppo out but they to scrounge some breathtakingly stuff to it work all titanium so I it’s ready mass market As you above about it seems me like cogs are as many as they’ll able to into the 130mm rear To fit any more without sacrificing durability, I that road would need adopt the standard 135mm spacing, and don’t see happening any soon.

But nobody really disc brakes the road either, so is possible.
