I stripped my bike of Campa and replaced everything with late Suntour parts. what a difference! I can now shift precisely without waking the whole street :)

:shock:
I'd never imagine that! Cyclist who never had (like me-) Campa-parts think (like me) these Italian things are some kind of "nonplusultra" among bike-components... SunTour gadgets rules -wouww! :lol:

Where does Blaze fall in the hierarchy of Suntour bits?

I'm a massive Suntour fan and have Cylcone mechs on my everyday ride.
The shifting performance is a world apart from the Nuovo Record equivalent.

I don't know exactly,but surely the Blaze-line was not the "high-end" product from SunTour...
Try to figure out e.g. from here:

The base of a proper decision is experience. The base of experience is an inproper decision... :?
Is it impossible for you to have another one?
This Boti is a gem:joy to posses,to ride and even to have a glance on it :)
