Merlin is a great merchant to buy component groupsets from. They have the best prices to begin with, and then when you add the discount codes, the deals are impossible to resist. I bought the Campagnolo Athena because of its looks, above entry-level performance, and light weight. So far it's delivered on all three counts. I upgraded a Bianchi bicycle that came with mixed Shimano components, and much prefer the Campy set. On my next bike I'm definitely going to get Chorus.
Very nice group, highly recommended!
First of all, service from Merlin was fantastic. The price was unbeatable and the groupset was delivered on the exact date predicted.
For comparison's sake, I have a bike with Shimano 105 and an older bike with Campagnolo Chorus 8-speed. I much prefer the Athena to both. The entire gruppo weighs slightly less than 105 and shifts flawlessly. While I have nothing against Shimano, I prefer the feel of Campagnolo; there is a satisfying click with each shift so you know what's going on. While I do miss the lack of trim adjustment on the FD compared to Chorus, as well as the lack of the ultrashift feature of higher-end Campy groups, the relatively light action and precision of the current Athena beats the older Campy shifters by a long shot. The ergonomics of the new shifters are also a huge improvement over the older Campy stuff and work slightly better than Shimano for my hands.
