It's interesting that Campagnolo have overtaken Shimano. That is if this poll is anything to go by. No suprise as SR 11 is so much sexier than 7900. I wonder if 9000 will turn it all around again.

Force of my caad 7.
new Red on my BMC.
no plans to change. new shimano looks good. dont like the lever style on the cable stuff though. electronic to expensive/heavy. UDi2 seems slow.

Record. I think the Campagnolo stuff is really beautiful in addition to the marvelous engineering. Besides, didn't Dante describe a circle of hell reserved for those who put Oriental components on Colnagos?

It's interesting that Sram's success in hi-end bikes (ww forum bikes that is) is more against Shimano than Campagnolo. It seems that Campagnolo has still a lot of fans in the hi-end category.

Got Campagnolo Super Record on my new road bike. After falling in love in Campa at work.
Have Sram Red on my CX but will change it for Chorus next year, Campagnolo is so much better.
But am I one of the few that likes 11-speed more than 10-speed? Had Record 10-speed last year but after riding some with the new levers I like them a lot more.

Record 10s here. Re: why the 10s love, I think a lot of it is aesthetic too, I find the 10s levers look much better, especially when paired with a nice classic drop bar... Mmmmm
Also, I think they have more of a mechanical feel (which i garther most campy fans like) as compared to at least the 1st gen 11s, which is the only stuff I've tried.

Rival/Force mixture for me. It's light. It works. It's cheap. Best option for me on a student budget.

Wow. Shimano the least percent of the three.... that's almost unbelievable.

I actually voted for Shimano, but I'm actually running Campy on my bike now and love it
I write the weightweenies blog, hope you like it
Disclosure: I'm sponsored by Velocite, but I do give my honest opinion about them (I'm endorsed to race their bikes, not say nice things about them)

I think this statement shows how much our opinions differ, I must say that I'm no great fan on the carbonlook and all the logos ind black, red and white on the higher Campagnolo groups (Athena is the prettiest in my opinion, but I'm also old enough to remember the good old days where all part were silver) even though it probably fits well on all the boring stealth bikes people including myself are driving. I should perhaps note that I'm in no way a fanboy and I would like to try Campagnolo as well as SRAM on some point.
