They mill them on a CNC machine... ... Just like everyone else Then again, there's a possible 2 watt saving between a good hub and one running full ceramic with no seals - or you could wear a better helmet and save 15 to 20 watts... ... Have fun with those hubs
Precision ground, fine grain, flawlessly hardened steel and aluminum made with care by skilled artisans long before the advent of computer numerical controls and light years before shitmaNO knew what a derailleur or precision hub was.
Ti axles and nuts and the finest track bearings ever fielded. Ask Eddy about them.
A full 40 years before it became 'fashionable', Campagnolo had already been there. With the finest bearings shipped in quantity produced hubs.
First with 11-speed and the finest quality materials and workmanship on the planet.
[end of thread]So even after posting page after page of snapped record stuff, especially the older junk, they're still Campags "finest?" That says it all really. [/end of thread] If I didn't use a PowerTap Bob, I probably would run Shimano hubs. Loved the Dura Ace 7400 freehub when I got my first set of racing wheels in the mid 80s. Finally someone put the rear wheel bearings where they needed to be - at the end of the axles! No Craplag-no-go when the rear axle gave in under the freewheel... The Shamals I got later on where nice but the hubs were unremarkable.
If it wasn't for Campag copying the Shimano freehub and STI concept and stealing SunTours rear mech design, there'd be no Campag 9 speed, let alone 11. They'd still be trying to get a 9 speed Syncro system to work on a freewheel, on an even weaker hub using a 1950s design of rear mech (just like the C-record essentially was) and you might have two gears that'd work using Syncro, a few that'd kinda work but rattle and some that were just unusable... Yeah, so you were saying about Campag innovation in our lifetime? Delta brakes, Syncro, SGR pedals... ****, **** and ****. Just wait till Shimano does something weird and wacky with its internally geared hubs and runs them in conjunction with Di2 - single chainring and about 90 gears... What now bitches?
I've owned ****-pag back when it was still the most commonly used groupset in the Pro peloton and it'll be the last time I'll buy the stuff. Need me to post another few dozen pics of broken Record/Super Record stuff? When the "lore" wears off, roadies will completely go the way the MTB guys did and Crappagnogo will fold...
Dura and Ace written on separate pieces! Awesome design!
This Hollow-**** prototype was an early example of shitmaNO trying to get the cranks to FAIL so that the Dura and the Ace were intact on the separate pieces.
They FAILED at that task, also.
I got it! Let's make sports cameras by copying the designs of everyone else and paying someone else to manufacture them for us since our bike parts are so damned shitty!
You whine about the Delta brake after shitmaNO released this polished turd???!!!
Yeah, a brake that worked poorly enough to...cause one to slam one's face into a house!!! And even after they copied Campy's Cobalto right down to the shitmaNO piece of **** plastic 'jewel'...they still came up with an 'aerodynamic' brake that lacked...aerodynamics!!!
1. No stopping power.
2. No aerodynamic properties.
3. Fugly as Swami's face after kissing a house.
4. Ripoff of a Campy design.
Jap. ****. Scrap.
Abandoned dead-end design.
About as collectible as every other shitmaNO piece of FAIL...zero value except for something to laugh at.
shitmaNO...better stick to FAIL Boat fishing tackle.
