My frame builder is going to be done with my custom gravel bike soon. And now he’s asking me for a final answer on a groupset…
I’m looking at the new Campagnolo Chorus 12 speed with a 48/32 crankset and the new SRAM Force AXS. I was very intrigued with the new Shimano GRX options, but he’s telling me he won’t be able to get them for up to 12 weeks.
Of course all these sets are new which is what makes me nervous. I was hoping to read/watch/hear some reviews to help make a decision. But even though we’re 2 months on from reveal of the Shimano and Campy groups, there’s still nothing out there.
What would you guys consider? The 12-speed options seem to provide a huge range which would be great for all-road riding. But maybe that’s getting too complex for something that’s going to get dirty.
