. . . it’s just that if you take a random sample of people on the forum you’d expect to find a much higher proportion of people on Shimano (having it a much higher market share..)
I was thinking the same thing. We have a huge cycling population in southeastern Virginia, and I've seen NO ONE on Campy but me.

I think the thing about this forum is that compared to the majority of the market this is pretty niche on here so you'll find people are buying very bespoke bikes in the main so there will be a huge mix of components. Walk into the average bike shop and you'll likely only see Shimano equipped bikes so that's what the majority will buy. Personally it's Campag all the way for me but that's because I've always used it and prefer the compatibility of components between bikes. Functionally there's probably little to choose between all the brands it's all down to personal taste.

English V3- red 22 mechanical rim brake

Cdale Evo hm- red 10 speed, rim brake

Trek crockett- red 10 speed, rim brake

Next bike will be mechanical red 22, mechanical disc, replacement for the Crockett.

The red mechanical 22 and 10 speed have proven to be bomb proof and have never let me down. All while being lightweight.

9100 Dura Ace Di2

Always had Shimano and have enjoyed it, not wanting to spend good money experimenting when I know it works how I like it.

Rather poor poll choices IMHO, I chose Shimano mech, but all my setups are really mixed up:
1. XC bike: M9000, XShfiter, RF Next SL, XG1099, PYC chain, Formula brakes. Not sure if it's electrical or mechanical 😛
2. Road bike: R9100 levers/RD, XG1190, Zipp Vumaquad, PYC chain, Hope RX4.
