Campagnolo love it or get Shimano…

“Shimano makes bike equipment that works beautifully. Campagnolo makes beautiful bike equipment that works.”

“Shimano’s boss did not start a cycling equipment company because his hands were frozen solid on a Giro mountain pass and he couldn’t get his wheel off.”

“Most bike shops sell Shimano.
You have to actively make the decision to go the Campagnolo route. This choice marks you out as different and more serious about your sport.”

“Shimano is the world leader in fishing tackle. Campagnolo only makes bicycle components.”

“One is made by scientists in the lab, the other by craftsmen with oil under their nails.”


“Now really?!?………..where did you see someone with a ‘Shimano’ tattoo lately???”



  • Very well stated! You have to go Italian.

    The Italians have been doing it for centuries. When it comes to art, fashion,la bella machina, DeRosa, Tommasini, Pinarello and Colnago…food and wine, and of course beautiful women, the Italians are Numero Uno.
