I’ve been planning to upgrade my Curve Kevin to Campagnolo Ekar since it came out. I love Campag and it’s on all my bikes except for the MTB and gravel bike, so when I first read about Ekar I was delighted.
I am looking for feedback from users - at this stage I have read/watched pretty much every review available on the web and read Campag’s description of the parts so I roughly know what I need to order.
The time is right for me - I’ve got the funds and have ridden my Apex 1 currenty installed on my Kevin pretty much to the ground, and I’ve located most of the parts (it seems that there is supply if I’m prepared to order from several suppliers).
So, Ekar users, what’s your story? Do you like it, does it work well, would you buy again? What should I consider when choosing the different versions of crankset, cassette and chain? What about maintenance?
Non-Ekar users who saw Ekar used in the wild, what have you heard, seen, and what did you think?
Thanks all for sharing
