Hi everyone, I'm off to view a bike with a Campag Victory groupset at the weekend. Anyone know if this was a reasonable groupset in its time, or was it just used on lower end bikes?

Thanks!!

Victory was an entry level performance groupset, one down from C Record. Chainring size is 116BCD so not easy to get hold of. Nice groupset though - if the price is right!

Have a read of this

Cheers

Thanks, good link. Looks good - unless the chainrings are worn...

I would describe the Victory groupset as quality performance/touring groupset. They are perfomance orientated to some extent, but they offered a great touring configuration in the 1st place. There were even off road possibilties, with triple and long cage mech. Later MTB specific groupsets lent from Victory.

Triomphe was the absolute bottom of the line and with Triomphe I would feel there is too much saving done. I wouldn't have that with Victory, but I would use it on right bike. A pure performance bike has to be Chorus, CdA or C-Record for me.

Turned out that it was a Triomphe groupset after all. Not bad, but you can see where they've economised on the materials and finish. The bike is actually a bit big for me (63cm) so will be up for sale on here soon.
