What's in your quiver?

In other words, describe the bikes you currently own.

Let's keep the descriptions relatively generic. I don't need a complete list of specs. Just give me enough that I can picture it in my head. :rolleyes:

BTW, if you can't ride it than it doesn't count. I don't want to hear about everyone's 5 year old Frankenbike project that has never been completed. :rofl:

My current selection of bikes include the following:

-Cannondale System6 with Dura-Ace and Ksyrium ES Wheels
-Surly Cross-Check Frankenbike. It's technically a CX frame but I've used it fixed, loaded touring, and actual CX racing. It is currently in a 1x9 CX configuration. :rolleyes:
-Niner One9 This is the only MTB I own. It is 29, Rigid, and Single.

Let me make it a little harder then. ;)

Can you spell it without using abbreviations?

What was their first bike component? (yes...first ever component)

What is the founders first name?

Name a product they make that is absolutely NOT bike related?

Tullio Campagnolo started the Campagnolo Company in 1933 in Vicenza after he was forced to withdraw from a race due to bad weather, that's when he invented the quick release mechanism for bicycle wheels.

At the end of the 1950s Campagnolo started to manufacture magnesium parts such as wheels for sports cars like Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, and Maserati, and also built chassis for NASA satellites in 1969.

God I love wikipedia:D

Cheater!!!

I was thinking more of the Campy Corkscrew but you found something else. :eek:

I have only owned one Campy product and it still works like a champ after 18 years. The Campy Pedal Wrench. ;)

btw the rig comes by way of Fogerson, woot. I love that bike :getsome:

I'm glad you're enjoying it.

It wouldn't surprise me if that bike ends up being like that one car that almost everybody owned at one point or another in high school.
