The demand issue is not true because out of every 5 KICKR we sell, 2 want it for Campy. Besides, what is really the cost of manufacturing this small piece? It’s not that it is built by Swiss watch craftsmen ... we know it’s made in Asia.

If I were you next time, just post your questions here before you buy anything... it has saved me personally a lot of grief and money!
