New "Ride-Logging" Camera

Campy Only is the proud owner of a new "Narrative Clip" camera, a small, clip-on camera that takes a photo every 30 seconds while it is being worn. Here are some sample photos from the first outing with the camera, which we plan to use to record our rides:

First Double Century of the 2014 Season

Well, the first double century that I (Campyonlyguy) will be riding is coming up this Saturday, Feb 15. It's the Camino Real DC, a 200-mile ride from Irvine, CA, to Oceanside and inland San Diego County and then back again.

Weather is looking great for this annual ride (it can get nasty out there), which will kick off my 25th season riding the California Triple Crown double century series (I'm still the only rider to have finished the CTC each of the 24 years it has been run).

Follow the Campy Onlly Twitter feed on ride day for live updates. We're at @Campyonlyguy

P.S. Apologies to all our fans, but the folding bike we'll be riding it not Campy equipped. Mea culpa.

Magnic Lights on My Bleriot Rando Bike

Our Magnic Lights are now aboard our Rivendell Bleriot rando bike. Tight clearances galore, but the lights work very well. They'll be lighting my brevet season this year, and hopefully PBP next year.

Version 2 of the Magnic headlight is scheduled to ship in April of this year. I'll post updated results when I've had a chance to try out the new lights, which are advertised as being brighter (and with a standlight function).

Can Anyone Help Find These Parts

Here's an email we thought we would share with everyone, in the hope that someone can help find the parts to get the writer's friend back on the road:

Spoke with Campy rep in Carlsbad and they said to contact you. I have a friend and neighbor who lost everything and his two italian road bikes to a LA Wild Fire 5 years ago. He has been successful in buying a replacement Guerciotti '84 road bike and he is looking for the following parts to restore it totally:

1. Campy handle bar end caps "yellow" with Campagnolo logo

2. Campy Cobalto Brake "Blue Gemstone" (2) caps

3. Campy toe clips size large

Any help to locate these vintage replacement parts besides Ebay and Amazon would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

If you have a line on any of these parts, email us: enorris [at] campyonly [dot] com and we'll pass along the info.
