There are those that have owned Campag 10 Speed Record and then there is the rabble that will never know what a proper shift feels like. Its like coming home when you engage the shift lever and theres no mamby pamby ratcheting around but rather a solid thunk as it shifts. And it alwasy does it and its always accurate.

Like being colour blind .You don't know what you are missing , and i thought campagnola was an italian salad dressing

And lets not forget - When jumping into a sprint in one thumb motion dropping the gear from you 23 to 11 in a split second dropping all the others who are clikety clacking through their gears while you cross the finish line to take yellow

Jeez you are making me all sentimental for the days when i could still pedal a 23 - 11 cluster with a 53/39 front ring. I forgot about the shift down the whole cluster when sprinting - you are making me remember when i could still sprint without flapping around on shifters... Never mind when i could still sprint...

Yes sadly all us old timers have had to revert to 12 28 clusters and compact cranks but luckily Campy still caters for us

The gravel one (ekar?) didn't really gain traction? I mean, unless it can rival sram and shimano offerings with some sort of mind blowing new way of doing things ( imagine they came with T-type), it’s a sizeable investment into R&D for something that maybe only the die hard loyal roadie snakes who also XCO would really play with. Since we are talking about ignoring the world stage or elite competition….the average  mountainbiker doesn't want pretty carbon cages and lightweight pretty stuff, they want bombproof and reliable stuff that can get smashed against rocks and keep going.

By that logic we should all be riding XT or GX groupsets ... maar dit is nie wat ons doen nie
