thats a beautiful component set which would compliment many many frames.

I do not always prefer Campagnolo over Shimano. I think it is highly dependent on bike. For example this bike would be less satisfactory with Campagnolo:

Both companys made both great and not so great stuff.

I don't think 'we' prefer Campagnolo. Certainly on older road bikes Campag would have been more or less the norm before the big S started to gain popularity (a shimano equipped bike had never won the TdF before a certain Mr Armstrong). Also think that an Italian road bike better 'suits' (whatever that means) Campag.

On a personal level nearly all my bikes are Shimano equipped.

Ohhhhhhhhhh I get it now lol. Yeah that makes better sense then. I kind of got this site confused with general consensus (because i mean... look around. there are a few sites going "those darn asians cant make bike parts stick to fishing reels campy is the best nothing else on my road bikes")

without any justification!

i think its humorous

and i'll admit campy has some good / sexy equiptment, never said there was anything particularly wrong with them.
