I started riding with years ago with Campy Super Record. When It was time for a new bike in the mid 80's Shimano's indexing system was clearly superior. Campy was still building beautiful componants but they did not work nearly as well as Shimano's. I bought a bike with 600 and it worked flawlessly for about two years. The headset went out twice and the shifters once. The finish on the components wasn't very good. After a few years the crank and hubs looked as though they had cancer.JohnnyCat said:Just curious. I've always heard of Shimano to Campy and not Ca to Sh.
