For those who can't make it to Paris, here's an interesting video from French TV. It's only in French (no subtitles), but you can learn a lot just from watching.
Update! Couple of photos from my visit to Alex Singer:

Hard to tell if there's any Campagnolo in these videos, but this archival footage, mostly from Paris in the 1930s and 40s, is full of fascinating images. Look closely and you'll see many things that recently became "new" again after all these years--recumbent bicycles, small-wheeled bikes, arm-powered "rowing" bicycles, high performance trailers, and more.
If you're going to be in the greater San Diego area on December 7, you should plan to take part in Campagnolo's annual toy drive/fun ride. Great event for a great cause.
Please don't bring any ShimaNO-made gifts. That would be cruel.
You might want to re-think that, after you see this fantastic wooden Campagnolo derailleur ("Tree-opmh," perhaps?) created by a U.S. woodworking student.
There are some fantastic wooden frames that this would be perfect with. Add some old school wooden rims, and you've got a real theme going!
