Campagnolo uses Shimano

Maybe this is not news to everybody, but it's news to me. Maybe it's not even very important. I was just very surprised to find that there were shimano branded cogs in the Campagnolo derailer that I just rebuilt. Is this some sort of conspiracy? Have the die-hard "campy only" crowd been duped?:confused:

If you are talking 9sp, some use a 9sp shimano cassette with a campy 9sp drivetrain. Or they use a modified shimano cassette to fit on shimano wheelset for campy.

it's a Nuovo Gran Sport derailer from around 1978 off a 12 speed. Perhaps cog is not the right word. I'm talking about the two little wheels with teeth on them that are on derailers that are circled in the attached photo. I'm not talking about a cassette or a freewheel.

The cogs on the derailleur are properly named "jockey pulleys". The pulleys have probably been changed out over the years due to wear and tear. The original Gran Sport derailleurs pulleys are are not "branded" At least based on the Gran Sport derailleur I have lying in a box on bike parts and which I just finished examining.

Yes most likely someone had some good Shimano jockey wheels kicking around so they threw them in there.
