What Goes Around ...

... Comes around, reborn by a new manufacturer. This time, bike maker Electra has brought back the famous Campagnolo "Sheriff's Star" hubs under their own brand (and updated with ceramic bearings). Sorry, fixie/track riders--they're set up with a freehub.

More info here. Click on the image to see other neo-retro parts, like Campy-styled quill pedals and quick release levers ...


  1. Sadly, Electra perpetrates by offering this in a Shimano/SRAM cassette body. They have completely missed the forest for the trees.

  2. I have said for years that Campy should continue to offer a Retro-group. They should still have the tooling. They'd sell quite a few of them and the profit margin would actually be quite good. They could even make them a limited edition and limited distribution through select dealers
