GM Says Campagnolo Sucks

GM may have decided to pull an ad that suggests that chicks don't dig cyclists ... but not before we noticed that the bike in the ad appears to be Campy equipped. Look closely (click on the image for a larger view) ...

Those brake levers looks like 1990s vintage Campagnolo. A very interesting choice for the ad, considering they've been out of production for almost 20 years.

  1. Not only are those Weinmann 144-pattern brake levers (found on centerpull bikes, either with weinmann or dia compe brakes), but also, the diamond-shaped head badge likely makes the bicycle a vintage bike a centurion, or possibly a Mercx (but not too likely imho with centerpulls). Anyone else know some asian bikes made with diamond shaped badges?
