Recently bought a Veloce 10sp chain, and I've been buying Campag 10sp chains for years. This new one is different.
Firstly, Campag chains come (came?) with a thin clear grease on them - almost like clear oil - and this new one last week had brown grease on it.
Secondly, the chain is "stiff" sideways. It changes sweetly enough at the rear, but the front triple is becoming annoying. Despite the front mech being adjusted perfectly, the chain going up from inner to middle sometimes de-rails onto the BB. Sometimes, the chain de-rails right off the chainset when going from middle to outer. Annoying in the extreme.
Never ever ever had this problem before.
However, the chain changes sweetly from outer to middle, and middle to inner, and even outer to inner. It does this perfectly.
I wonder if Campag are running out of 10sp chains and the writing is on the wall for their demise.
