More on the 2011 Line: Imperfection is Perfection

CyclingWeekly posted a complete report on the new stuff ... and pointed out that the new crankset design for lower-priced gruppos is aimed at the mass market and ShimaNO's dominance of the factory-spec'ed business.

The performance and weight remain to be seen but the final two words 'reliability' and 'cost' are the vital points at this early stage because it appears Campagnolo really are going after the 'original equipment' market - that's the parts you buy already built onto a complete bike - by making these new components simpler and therefore cheaper and more tolerant of frame manufacturers' engineering imperfections.
