A Daytona by any other name....(7 posts)

A Daytona by any other name....Cima Coppi

I read in the rumor mill through www.campyonly.com that Campagnolo has been sued over the naming rights to the Daytona group. Another Italian manufacturer uses the name Daytona for one of its products, and wants exclusivity to use the name. The rumor is that Campy will change the Daytona group name to the former MTB group name (Euclid, I think).

I'd like to have a naming contest for Daytona's replacement, and frankly I cannot wait to see what all of you come up with. Personally, I lack the creativity to come up with something, as I liked the Athena name Campy used prior to Daytona. Have fun with this one!!!!

I believe the name will be Centaur. I agree, I liked Athena. Wish they would go back. I guess this means my Daytona 10 stuff is going to be quite exclusive!
Centaur, it is...Cima Coppi

I checked back on campyonly.com and you are correct about the Centaur name. Thanks!!

...maybe Ferrari will be bringing back the name. Maybe we'll see a Ferrari Chorus, or a Campy Testa Rosa...
