    I think I'm going to need some lower gearing on the Dave Lloyd Mega Challenge.

    So I'm looking for a Campag 10 speed 13-29 cassette, in new or near new condition.
    Also a Campag medium cage rear derailleur, Mirage or above.

    Anything in your bits box?:ohmy:

    Joe, you don't need a medium cage mech, you can use a short mech with the 13-29. Although Campag say you need medium it isn't true. I use a Xenon short cage with a 13-29 and a 48/34 Compact with no problems.

    Well I've bought them now. But I have not fitted them so I may try the short cage first, and if it works get a refund on the medium. I'm running a 50/34 though....

    Let me know how you get on. I've just upgraded to a Centaur carbon chainset with 50/34 rings and as I normally run a 12/25 I haven't tried it with the 13/29 hill-climber yet.
