Rare Campy Stuff You've Probably Never Seen

Longtime reader and former Campy Only contributor Jeff K sent this photo of some rare Campy parts. Shown is a brake part that used an internal spring to prevent overbraking--essentially an early attempt at bicycle antilock brakes. Applying too much pressure would compress the spring, limiting the amount of braking force.

The version on the left is a prototype that included a "lockout" setting. On the right is the production version without the lockout.

Thanks to Jeff for the photo. If you have any rare Campy bits, please send us a photo and info and we'll post them.
