Thumbs up to Campyonly(11 posts)

Thumbs up to Campyonlymackgoo

I just wanted to complement Campyonly and their un biased coverage of what is turning into what can only be described as the carbon crank debacle. Campyonly certainly justafiably puts Campagnolo products at the top of the heap where they belong, but they certainly don't pull any punch's when Campy pulls a gaff either.

When I first discovered the sight a few years ago. They were total rah rah for Campy and ShimaNO bashers. They have become more balanced and are providing good info for Campy lovers out there. They weren't afraid to bash Campy about their clothing line either. I'd love to have a Campy jersey and shorts but not at those prices.

There is a limit to what people will pay for the Campy cache and IMHO they have reached the limit with their cranks and new clothing line. I'm not ready to go ShimaNO again though. Been there done that and not going back.

debonding problems with carbon cranks?Dog

*January 21, 2002--A reader from Denmark writes that his local dealer, Danish Racing Sports, has stopped taking orders for the carbon crankset due to quality concerns.

*January 17, 2002--It's just a rumor so far, but we're hearing that crankset maker FSA has taken Campagnolo to court citing patent infringement. Rumor has it they are trying to stop Campagnolo from making any more carbon cranks. This news from a reader who was told this by a distributor in London, England . . .

*January 16, 2002--We're not alone in reporting problems with the new carbon crankset. Go to and read the message threads--and let us know how you like your carbon crankset.

*January 15, 2002--We asked readers who have received their carbon cranksets to send us their impressions. The first response thus far was an ominous report from Tony Valenti, who wrote, "I have a record carbon crankset have ridden it two days (56mi)and it has failed. Left side debonded from aluminum insert that bolts it to bottom bracket." Please let us know about your experiences with the carbon crankset!

I think I'll wait a while.

Campyonly now reports that FSA supports CampySteve Davis

Received an e-mail today saying that FSA is not suing Campy over the crank design. Instead, the company seems rather supportive (maybe because they are making the cranks?).
Aren't these cranks actually made by Zipp??? ...... nmCT1

it seems odd because Campy has been moving toward producing and controling more stuff in house. Chains etc. I had read that they are moving toward more carbon and less Ti so that they can do the work themselves, control quality and make more money.

Doesn't sound like great quality control here though. I have a Tri-geek friend who owns a bike shop I'll ask him he sells lots of Zipp stuff to the Tri crowd.

ridiculous. I never saw such a bunch of nerds in my life perseverate on a product before this much. They come up with stupid songs about Shimano and little sayings. It is entirely too gay for me.
Campy is a component group not a religion. Very wierd guys. Nothing against campy, I think the guys at Campy probably think these guys are idiots.
