 Campagnolo Centaur 10 Speed Cassette (12-25 & 13-26)
Campagnolo Centaur 10 Speed Cassette (12-25 & 13-26)
The profile of the teeth, completely redesigned in line with the Ultra-Drive(TM) project, makes it possible to achieve the maximum response speed at the moment of shifting.
 

Do you have the 13 - 26 cassette in stock? If not could you confirm when it will be available?

My current set up is campagnolo centaure groupset with 12 - 25. Will the 13 - 26 be easily interchangeable? In fact I'm looking for a cassette for the mountains: would 13 you happen to have 13 - 27? Cheers

Depends on the cage length of the rear derailier.

I have a Campag Centaur groupset (10 speed) and have bought a set of Mavic Ksyrium SL wheels, could i fit a new Campag Veloce 10 speed cassette?

to my new wheels or do i have to put a more expensive Centaur cassette on? In short, would a Veloce cassette work o.k. with a Centaur groupset?

 Continental Quality Road Pack of 5 Inner Tubes
Continental Quality Road Pack of 5 Inner Tubes
Pack of 5 high quality inner tubes. The Continental quality road inner tube is a must have cycling essential for 700c bike wheels.
 

Confused over what size to buy...

I've always just got tubes from my bike shop before so never had to think about which size to buy and there's a bunch of options. I'm on a standard road bike and on my current tube box (different brand) says 700 x 18 - 23C Presta 48mm.

I've just had new tyres put on - Continental 4000S.

Any advice on which of the tube sizes I should buy is much appreciated.
