This will take some careful consideration.

Record OR group was nice. But too expensive for what it was - but since when has this been a parameter for cool?

Cassette Hubs were pretty much a precursor for most of the cassette hubs later made by everyone else except Shimano,King and Hugi.

Front mech was horrible. Chainset and cassette a monster of non-standardisation. Earlier groups were way too chunky and frankly hideous.

Will have to sleep on this...

In this case one could be easily swayed by its rarity and place in MTB history from collectors point of view. (big company.. trying to get into a new market.. hasnt worked out..not many pieces around..etc)

Lets be totally honest though!
Outside superficial perverted taste of hardcore retrobike collector
Campa on mountain bike has NEVER BEEN COOL
Nowdays its very interesting for the reasons stated above. No doubt.
But that is not COOL.
