O.K.....on the Campy web site, once I reach the '2000 Spare Parts Catalog', I can only view/access the index pages 1-20; what is the secret to viewing the other pages (i.e., Page 54)???? I wouldn't ask this, except I couldn't find a 'Contact us' function.....
Thanks..

Fix It Again Toni.

Opps, now I'm going to get blasted for being racist again.

On shimano.com you have to go to the Urup section to find the exploded views and part # info - maybe it's similar in Campyland.

That's the problem....the index lists the page numbers for items (& exploded views) desired, but there isn't anyway to get to the pages above p.20. (been a long time since I heard the FIAT slogan'...lol....you're obviously over 35yo....[FORD:Fix Or Repair Daily; BMW: Bring More Wrenches])
Thanks again.
or how about....xrayman

...a moniker earned in the 80's when BMW Blaupunkts were the lingua franca of stolen car radios.

There is a great story (probably apocryphal) about a BMW owner in New York who got so tired of his radio being stolen that he left the wires dangling out of the dashboard with a sign that said "NO RADIO".

The owner returned to his car one day to find the driver's side window smashed, with a sign on the steering wheel that said "JUST CHECKING".

Germany's view of car acronymsThe Kid

Just in time for Jan Ullrich and Company's invasion of Italy, here's some Italian car-bashing from Deutschland.

FIAT = Falle Im Alle Teile - roughly translated to "a defect in every part."

Of course, the regions inside Germany are fiercely loyal to their own manufacturers. The Schwabians in Stuttgart and Sindelfingen are fond of ragging on BMW.

BMW = Bayrische Mist Wagen - close to "Bavarian Manure-Mobile."

I am glad I never found out what they call a Peugeot, my current daily driver. Curiously, the worst part on the car is the ZF auto transmission, my first and last auto gearbox ever. It's made in Germany, so that's their revenge on me. I've never called mine a FIAT, but there have been some other choice four letter words used. :)

just for the Record, Campy Man ...

COBRA ...as in Carroll Shelby aluminum AC Bristol bodied Ford powered conceived in Santa Fe Springs, California and built in the old Lance Reventlow site in Venice, Cal.

The name Shell gave the little roadster actually derived from "Copper-Braised" ...from the Crosley (remember them?) light weight military portable field generator. The PR took over & inserted the snake. A bit odd as the Cobra is not native to Texas. A bit odder is that the DeThomaso Mangusta (later Pantera) which is translated Mongoose ( Cobra Killer, as in Rikki-Tikki-Tavi [ Jungle Book, Rudyard Kipling ] ) was an Italian creation using the Ford 351 Cleveland. And the Italian Facel Vega used the Chrysler V8 engine as you may know.
