Cool things

104 posts in this topic

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

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.

My swimming teacher back at school flew Sunderland flying boats during the war.   We thought that was very cool.

Sram and Shimano are efficient and well made.

 

Campagnolo are cool to the tips of their toes.
