I voted campy myself, even though I don't own any campy stuff... just to get the ball rolling ... I probably should have include brooks then too

Given the discriminatory nature of this poll, I want another ballot so I can change my vote to no.

Don't post that in the Road Forum, unless you want to make enemies.

No enemies I want to make. I'm just saying that's what I heard, not that I am agreeing. Geez.

It's certainly ok to say that you prefer brifters that don't look like a souvenir from Disneyworld.

Seriously, sistuh, there are some eyes-rolled-back-in-the-head-tongue-hangin'-out ranters on Road Cycling forum. Whether you like Campy or Shimano or state no preference, you are WRONG. Get it? They are tough boys. Yeah. That's what they are. <serious Vega look>






Psbbbbttttt!

It's almost like a religion to some of those people.

Even though I just voted, I refuse to vote in your poll as it does not include an option for maxiillary palpae
