My dad's pink Pearson has a full compliment of campy stuff, apart from the brake calipers, someone replaced them with 105's. The question is how do I know which brakes it would have had? All the campy stuff just has Campagnolo on it, no model numbers! Any help greatfully received.

A few pictures would be a big help, or even a hint at the bike's age.

Alternatively, you could just browse through the catalogues here:

http://www.campyonly.com/history/catalogs.html

and try to pick out what you currently have to find a match.

Frankly tuttocampagnolo.com was a lot better, though it disappeared a while back.

I don't much mind Americans saying "Campy" - after all, they can't be expected to know any better - but a Briton using the Americanism does jar a little. It's always been "Campag" over here, here being where the heart is.

In the physical here, it's "Campa".

Indeed - it's often been pointed out that Campy sounds a bit, er, well, camp. There's potential for a Round the Horne-esque "Bona Bikes" sketch in there somewhere..... :wink:
