One of our readers, Dr. Douglas Antelman, wrote some new lyrics that we thought our Campagnolo Only fans would appreciate . . .

Well, you went uptown riding on your STI
in your cheap Bike Nashbar clothes
you had the STI levers in hand
and snot runs from your nose

But, you were up all night with your derailleur apart
and now your eyes are too bloody to see
go on and ride on it broken
but don't come bitchin' to me...

Because you had to buy Shimano, didn't ya?
you had to go along with the crowd
you had to ride Shimano didn't ya
now it's time to throw it out...
you had to have the cheap stuff didn't ya
don't know what quality's about
you had to ride Shimano didn't ya...

Well, they were all impressed with your Dura Ace
when you stood at the starting line
But when your shifter blew out you lost 5 minutes of time
And, now you're not real sure where the race leaders are
and you're not sure that you wanna know
I'll give you one hint buddy, they ride Campagnolo!

But, you had to treat ride Shimano, didn't ya
you thought you go along with the crowd
you had to ride Shimano, didn't ya
but all your purchase parts they just flew out
you had to ride the cheap stuff, didn't ya
don't know what quality's about
you had to ride Shimano, you had to ride Shimano

Well it's no big sin to ride with more about Italian
it costs more but you might win it alone
but when you went over the line everyone else had gone home

No no no no no, you had to buy SHIMANO didn't ya?
etc.

Music just doesn't get any better than this! Thanks, Dr. Doug!
