|Campagnolo's official press release:
At Interbike, Campagnolo celebrates 75 years of its glorious and storied legacy with a new book: Campagnolo: 75 Years of Cycling Passion. The book includes a chapter on the company's legendary Super Record group and on the new 11-speed Super Record group, which will be launched at Interbike. The book will be available at Interbike at the VeloNews/VeloPress booth, #2139. Campagnolo will be available to the bike trade in September and will be available in bookstores and online in October.
As Leica is to cameras and Ferrari to racing automobiles, Campagnolo is to cycling: designer of the finest parts for bicycles ever made. Campagnolo's jewel-like brakes, pedals, derailleurs, cranksets, and wheels have been ridden to more race victories than any other brand, yet the same components are available to cycling enthusiasts worldwide.
Campagnolo's rich history began with the founder, Tullio Campagnolo, a racer who turned to creating better bicycle parts when he found the equipment of the day inadequate for the rigors of professional competition. Blending exotic alloys with sound engineering, Campagnolo created a series of patented designs that are still in use today as the fundamental standards upon which modern parts are based.
With its deeply researched history (much of it from the company's private archives), spectacular color photography, rich text, and lavish presentation, Campagnolo is a book for every lover of the sport of cycling, as well as connoisseurs of the bicycle itself. Color and black-and-white photos and illustrations throughout.
