Finally, I own some Campy.

Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Finally, I own some Campy.

It’s Campagnolo, not Campy.

You don’t call you mother a moth, or your country a ****.

I'm not ashamed to admit I own one. Had it for 30+ years. Best darn corkscrew I've owned.

The store says they actually sell 2-3 per year.

I don't see why it's needed.

I got mine in 1985 as a wedding present from the shop i worked at. I think that this is a pretty common tradition, and a lot of them out there were purchased for this purpose. BTW, still going strong, still the best ever cork screw EVER. I have always especially loved the re-purposed chain ring bolts for the pivots.

You need to keep that lubed with special grease made from Tuscan wild boar fat and pulverized anchovy cartilage, or it won't last very long. (Make sure it's real Tuscan wild boar fat - the stuff you get on ebay from China doesn't work.)

Stop being a elitist. For short, I've heard it called "Campy" a thousand times....

So is it okay to say "I got a Canny(Cannondale) with some Shamy(Shimano)"?

Some people say "ain't", but I don't care for that either.

You can say whatever you like. But I've never heard of Canny or Shamy. I have heard Campy, however.

Gentullio Campagnolo and I aren't close friends, so we don't use nicknames.

ďCampyĒ, it keeps bike shop employees from trying to pronounce the Ďgí in Campagnolo. LOL

You serious, Clark?
I figured your first post on this was a joke, but the more you post the less that looks to be correct.

Campy is universally(you arent in the universe) accepted as a nickname for Campagnolo. Campy is simple for anyone to pronounce.
