I'm not surprised that they do offer sram/shimano.

I am surprised that they DON'T offer campy. That's just weird.
Why would they?

Elektra designed it for their bikes. They run shimano drivetrains. Thus, shimano compatibility. Plus, you get shimano/sram compatibility with one freehub body. They'd have to make another one for campy. That's more expensive.

If they take off, really fly off the shelves, I'd bet they introduce a campy version.

Me, I'm interested in those TA crank knockoffs... If they've found some way to get around the TA cranks inherent flaws- chainrings that bend and ridiculously high prices -I'd be all over them.

I was confused that it was an 'electra' named campy component... so if electra bike is making 'em, are they really campy???

Nope, I guess you could call them Campy inspired neo retro, or something like that.

I don't think they've set a price yet, either.

Not campy- also, not TA cranks, not VO constructeur racks and not Honjo fenders... But they're all real purty copies.

They've pretty much taken VO's MO of making inexpensive copies of vintage bits and run with it.

They look like they have the "small spline", so they should be good for both.

vice versa?

Don't see any Campy parts made to look like Shimano parts now, do you? :)

They are not out and there is no price as far as I know. I work at a bike shop that is an Electra dealer. The Electra rep came in the other day I and I asked him about prices and availability. He had nothing even on the prices.

As for the Shimano splined vs. Campagnolo splined rear hub which is more common? Even in the pro Peloton SRAM and Shimano are everywhere with a handful of teams running Campagnolo.

Aaargghh, can't find anything much out about these, in production yet? Cost??
Now available through electra.com. Don't click on hubs, use the link for "Ticino Parts Collection".

$300, wow! I was thinking of using a pair of these to build some NOS high polish FiR tubulars I've got hanging around. At $300, I might pass despite the obvious beauty.

While we are on the subject of Campy replicas, has anyone seen the NR crank copy from IRD? I have no idea on price but it seems to me there is a market for them, especially with the growing fixie culture. Hopefully, the attachment feature will work.
Otherwise, see here:

Wow, those are nice...too bad they don't offer 175mm, I'd ditch the Omniums for a set of those.
