You do not understand until you have joined the ranks of roadies. You should read my first post in this thread.
Brand name does partly have to do with it, Campagnolo's lineage is completely astounding, unmatched; this is due to quality and innovation which does come at a price of course. My comparison was with how campagnolo makes roadies and vintage collectors drool like how NJS does for hipsters.
And will you guys give street cred a break? As street cred is such BS in my book, especially from my roadie point of view; take a nice expensive complete road bike, toss the frame, transition the parts to any track frame = street cred... and street cred for BB is overrated anyway, it's not like people are going to see your BB....
