The campa is't for everybody as well as Shima or SRAM. It is all mater of personal preferences. Only think were both rivals can't compete with Campa is history. Personaly I don't care about it.
I would by Campa (i like thumb shifting, and like the looks of new shifters an whole centaur group), but that does't mean i should blindly belive it is somehow superior to others, or like "not for everybody". Cmon- milions own Campa- how it is "not for everybody"?
