Hmm.. will there be another Super Record set with a lot of collectors' cache like the 50th Anniversary one ??


Interestingly, Shimano will be in its 92nd year in 2013.
Know quite a number of people who are under the impression that Campag is the older bike components company .. :noidea:

Barf. That emblem is hideous. This would be a fantastic place to do a modern carbon groupset with a simple application of the classic Campagnolo wordmark, but no...

Just heard the rumour too and i'm just about to pull the trigger on a super record groupset however If that's the finished item, i won't waiting for it to come out and i'll simply purchase the regular one instead. It Looks awful.

personally, the emblem will look a lot better in gold rather than red...

The 80th Anniversary emblem spoils the overall aesthetics of the otherwise pretty SR grouppo. :roll:

I think they would/ could have done better if they did a 'retro-styled' SR group by chrome plating/painting all the carbon bits including the chainrings with reverse masking for the lettering and logos and maybe embossing the emblem together with a more discrete colour patch?

Thought Campy was know for its class.....looks like a NASCAR emblem to me, or some 'commemorative' coin set sold on late night tele.
