The new lineup includes a new nameplate--"Bullet"--that will offer both tubular and clincher options and a special cyclocross version. The new wheels also offer rims with alloy braking surfaces (see photo below).

|New chain. That's a Velo Orange crankset with 48/34 rings.|
|New rubber. I've been using Panaracer Paselas with great success. When I rode PBP in 2007, I had no flats in 1200 kilometers.|

Campagnolo's expertise with metals isn't limited to bicycle components. Shown below is a beautiful example of a Campy-equipped vehicle of a different kind: the 1967 Alfa Romeo Stradale, which came from the factory with Campagnolo-made alloy wheels.
Generally regarded as one of the most beautiful production cars ever made, it was very expensive and made in limited numbers. It is rarely seen in public today. Read more here.
Just 14 days from today, Campy Only will be on a plane bound for France, where we will be riding our Campy-equipped retro-flavored Benotto in the 1200-kilometer Paris-Brest-Paris randonee. We'll be blogging from France (although probably not during the ride!), so keep checking back for our reports.
From reader Dave comes today's retro-flavored bike, a classic Basso Gap. He writes,
Hello again, David from Pittsburgh PA. This is a fresh 11month long build of a classic NOS Basso Gap frame with Columbus SL tubing, I used NOS Campy C Record Delta components (seatpost & headset are chorus), Delta brakes with power grade levers, she is 8speed with Synchro down tube shifters, which actually work pretty damn good! Rims are NOS Campy Omega Strada tubulars, Nos Cinelli Grammo stem, Nos Cinelli Touch bars, Selle Anatomica saddle and Campy cables. Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking!
