Quite scary that there are people willing to pay good money for it, too. To quote Vic Reeves Big Night Out: "Very poor; very poor indeed".

Woeful. Still ,I did something similar when I was 15 so it may be a youngster trying to earn some pocket money whilst honing his artistic skills. At which point I say fair doos but now you know that your dad's advice to become an accountant is wise counsel :lol:

oh god truly dreadful, I feel loss, hope he buried them and didn't sell them to some unsuspecting short sighted person with very deep pockets. I bet someone in Texas did them and sold them to his mates and said well if everyone in Italy is doing it I'll have some of that! sorry hope I haven't breached the forum rules! apologies to our Italian and Texan members!

My eyes! Those really are truly dreadful. The quality is shocking. I'm not sure which is more alarming - the fact that he's selling it, or the fact that people appear to be buying it - and are satisfied with it!

:shock: Disaster....
This one is £94 atm: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Campagnolo-3t ... 5aedd7de2c
Look how's the front of the clamp engraved... he didn't even bother to polish off old 3t logo.. :facepalm:
How people can bid on this piece of sh*t? How someone could fit it on his bike? Amazing.

Last time I looked, I had no discernible artistic talent, graphic design or aesthetic sense of style. I should have a go at doing this then. :D
