    There were two more bikes of note, and Ken Bloomer sent us some specs and photos of even more bikes to lust after. The first is the Firefly Ti Cross with an Enve tapered fork. It features Campa Record 11, Chris King R45 Campa hubs with Enve 45 rims and a custom internal cable routing carbon stem. It’s total weight? A mere 6.5 kg.

    We’d heard rumors a while back about legendary Italian component manufacturer Campagnolo coming out with a gruppo specifically for cyclocross and have seen early photos but had been sworn to secrecy. Now, the first signs “of” that lineup are public in the form of the CX Power-Torque cranksets. Campagnolo purists or mix-and-match fans (see our revolutionary Perfect Cyclocross Shift article in Issue 9 and our popular online article on using Campy shifters with Shimano drivetrains) have another drivetrain component option that allows smaller chainrings. Presumably other components will accompany the crankset shortly, and we’ve already seen info about three cyclocross-specific aluminum clincher wheelsets coming to market soon.

  • Shimano and Campagnolo – Can’t We All Get Along?

    Shimano Derailleurs and Campagnolo Ergopower Levers Happy Together

    Most ‘cross racers don’t have the luxury of component sponsors, don’t receive new bikes or new drivetrains each year, and lack pit crews to clean their bikes every lap. We at Cyclocross Magazine are no different, and as we choose parts for our ‘cross bikes, we take all these things under consideration in hand-picking our parts. Over the last few years, we’ve come to be fond of one particular setup: Campagnolo Ergopower shifters mated to Shimano derailleurs and cassettes. Some fondly call his setup “Shimergo.” What the hell? These two aren’t supposed to work, you say?
