Hi all,
I am currently running a full Centaur Black/Red 10 speed groupset and am wondering what the compatibility is to run it 11 speed? I realise I have to get a new cassette, rear mech, chain and right hand shifter at least. Would it be OK to run the chainset in the setup and the front mech? I was going to run Athena for the "upgrade" bits would all of that play nicely together? any help much appreciated. Cheers.

    Is it worth to spend all that money for an extra sprocket?

    Campag doesn't even do 32 T cassettes, so it's really just a waste of money... not to speak about the fact that 11 speed campag cassettes cost twice or three times as much as your 10 speed ones

    I really struggle to find a positive in a sea of negatives... enlighten me... :shock:

    To be honest I hadn't really looked that far into it. I just saw the shiny new Shimano 5800 11 speed on my girlfriends new Merckx and thought "I'd like some of that" and wondered what the options were. If it's a whole world of expense for not a lot of gain then like you say probably not worth it! Cheers for the advice.

    Nobody counts your cogs....., even the guys at your rear wheel have no interest, I still ride 9 and nobody ever commented on that.

    I also run 9s, but with Campag 10s levers (Shimano 9s cassette, Campag f/r mech).
