sorry mate, we've gone from genuinely cool, through bike gears (wtf?) and now onto plants.

You underestimate the relationship some cyclists have with their cycle(s). While fundamentally a machine to help you get from A to B, a well-designed bike is a thing of beauty. It is also a collection of individual components that have a visual quality of their own.

And that is before you get on the saddle...

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Campagnolo are the epitome of cool. Even their tools are beautifully mafe.

Why would anyone want to shave a badger?  :blink:

 

Now, if you'd said a beaver, well... :ph34r:

Well made is all very good but I'm not sure campy are cool. A bit too flowery and flashy. Sram on the other hand is pure simplistic brilliance. Just 6 moving parts in their double tap shifters and the same tech throughout the range, just different materials.
