Hi all. Just reaching out and saying hello and I look forward to being a part of the community and learning.

I currently own
-Bianchi Xr2 with Campy Chorus groupset
-Bianchi L'una with a dura ace setup
-Time T1700 bike my grandfather gave me when I was a kid

Hoping to one day inherit a nice Peugeot he has back in Spain that he used in his cycling days.

I'd love to post some pictures but unfortunately I'm too new at the moment. Regardless just stopping by to say hello

I have my my reasons for both.

The feel of Campy there's nothing like it. Not to mention how pretty and shiny those carbon fiber bits are.

Now the Dura Ace has been rock solid and requires no tinkering compared to the Campy. Also I should mention the Campy setup gets used a lot more on my Oltre with the road/trainer so it may not be fully fair to say it requires more attention.

I'm looking to build a Megatube soon and intent to put a Campagnolo groupset on it. A fine Italian frame deserves to be paired with a Campy setup. So that may be my answer to your question 😎
