    Best Campagnolo ad ever. Period.

    Can it be had in poster size, by any chance?

    I got my first Campy Super Record rear derailleur in the early 1980s.

    I'm STILL using my first Campy Super Record derailleur on my Ciocc.

    Campy doesn't break-down . . . it just breaks in!

    EDIT: That beautiful old Campy ad is truly a perfect example of "truth in advertising". The literal truth.

    Yes.

    The ad brings to mind the old movie line by The Duke:

    I like this advert, but every time I saw it way back, I want to move the ridge line on the two pivot fasteners and add the stamped text.
    I am sure the illustrator was proud enough of the Campagnolo Super Record text, a pain to render by hand.

    My favorite Campagnolo ad and poster was the one with Eddy soon after a victory, (I think it was a World's) with a bouquet and being hugged by Tullio Campagnolo.

    So, anyone able to convert this to a poster? I have one file scanning but it's over 100mb 800dpi. I have another that that is much smaller. What is needed for a poster? Anyone?

    The average laser printer prints at 300 or 600dpi and you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference. Even the low res copy you have on Flickr would look acceptable, though not nearly as good. I'd say 300dpi is a good resolution to scan it at. Maybe 600 and a little bit of compression to keep the file size reasonable.

    This might go nicely in a set with it. I'll do a better scan of it if anyone wants it.

    I wish I had a flatbed scanner, I found a '94 Campy catalog with a few interesting things in it, plus an old Mavic one. I forgot there even WAS a Campy Record OR (Off-Road) mountain-bike group.

    I changed the scan to fit standard poster size (24x36). I did a few hurried edits (Gaussian blur, unsharp mask, cloned background,) I think the end result is acceptable looking when it printed.

    I have a 15mb limit on my flickr account so I had to save lower the resolution a bit to get under the limit. Don't expect perfection from it, but I think it will be decent.

    Here is the link to the download
