we have finally an answer to the everlong debate!!Spirito

on a thread down the page i put it straight to phil ligget:-

Campy or Shimano?

what better person to ask. an authority, a man with much experience and has seen many seasons and fashions change, a man you would be reasonable with should you find him in bed with your wife as he's just that sort of guy/ father/ demigod...the voice that soothes us.

generally the perfect candidate to put to rest our most despised question as we, and certainly i, will get violent if i see it asked once more in whatever form, that dreaded campy vs. shimano thing.

ladies and germs.....(drumroll)

phil chose Campagnolo!...and yes its on this forum.

now lets just get back to either sucking up to each other or flaming and figuring out how to post hot chick pics without appearing sexist.

So no need for any further discussions on this rotting-
piece-of-dog-liver-pounded-into-the-pavement issue. 'Tis
a sad day for us all.
An actual argument i heard (unbelievable) ...Djudd

i though it a gas too...that he actually replied ...hehehheSpirito

but then again if there is any truth to my interview then perhaps we are chums as i pointed out..see below

phil own gags still crack me up but then again thats how i speak.

what i do wanna know is :-

where does bob roll gets his lessons in elocution. whilst watching the OLN gear guide i heard bob, for the 2nd year in a row, say components as commmm-ponents. maybe its that i am am from australia and inclined to the english pronunciation but it certaily sounds funny. his giro d'italia ads are the funniest and worht looking out for.

thanks ahimsa

ciao baby

Haha, whenver I hear Bob Roll say it I writhe in pain. It's actually quite funny since I've been waiting for my next LBS trip to use his pronunciation. I'll let you know if they kick me out.

It sounds like he really sides with Shimano though. nmMike P
