Here's another reason to ditch your office job and start working at a bike shop: Campagnolo has started offering industry discounts. Under the new program, you'll be able to buy one complete gruppo (individual parts don't apply) and one wheelset per year at a reduced price. Campagnolo says they hope this will make the guy at the bike shop more familiar with their stuff and (one would hope) more likely to suggest it to customers.
Campagnolo faces an uphill climb--most bike shop employees work in a world dominated by ShimaNO and S-equipped bikes--but it's worth a try.
