CampagnoloTo celebrate 80 years of cycling history Campagnolo has revisited some of its most emblematic products and created a functional representation of what the brand was, is and will continue to be in the future. Campagnolo has reinterpreted perhaps its greatest contribution to cycling, the mechanical transmission. Through years of continuous innovation and numerous evolutions the Campagnolo groupset has accompanied many of the most important athletes in cycling history to prestigious victories. Campagnolo has also made fast bikes faster and feared athletes more fearsome through its' production of some of the highest performance wheels and hubs ever ridden. To celebrate the contributions of Campagnolo to cycling, the iconic Italian company has taken its' top mechanical groupset and wheelset and added revolutionary cutting-edge treatments to create the unique looking 80th Anniversary collection of special edition components. It is elegant enough to represent the prestige of Campagnolo's history yet durable enough to withstand the rigors of competition. New finishing techniques such as humid-state micro-sanding of carbon fibre parts, new opaque finishing procedures on aluminum parts and new treatments for often overlooked technical pieces - these will resist the test of time and use. Even the celebratory logo resists even the harshest and most aggressive cleaning agents.
The first to bring an 11 speed electronic system to market, Campagnolo EPS has asserted its resurgence at the top of the road racing market. The internationally recognised Super Record, Record and Chorus EPS groups have led to a big demand from current Pro Tour riders, triathletes, former racers and new converts to road cycling.
CinelliThe soul of cycling since 1919. Cinelli have great new bikes, Components and clothing for 2012. The Ram 3 bar and stem combo compliments the amazing range.
Cinelli was established in 1919 and Cinelli frames and racing bikes are legendary in racing history. Way ahead of the field in design terms throughout the 80's and 90's, Cinelli has re-emerged as an unequalled maker of specialist bicycles. Cinelli has always treated design by its own definition of shape, technique, creativity, function, uniqueness and know-how. You can always tell a Cinelli - its style is inimitable. Cinelli have won 28 Gold Medals in various Olympic Games and World Championships. Their reputation extends far beyond the cycle industry because their values are different and because cycling is such an important part of their Italian life. Cinelli undoubtedly fits all the criteria of racing. Their niche Bootleg brand comprises highly desirable street bikes, originally conceived from a trend in Italy where top-end bikes were covered in black tape to disguise their value.
With margins of 34%, SRPs start at the Experience with Shimano Sora at £979.99. As with all Chicken build-ups Campagnolo, Miche, Selle Italia, SKS and Vittoria parts are used as standard fit. The Cinelli Bootleg range includes the Racing Rats and Mystic Rats single speed bikes in black and white.
DataTagWorking as both a deterrent and a means of identification, OE and after-market packs make bikes 60% less likely to be stolen.
The state-of-the-art transponders read by over 3500 police Datatag scanners at the roadside are highly recommended by 2 insurance companies.

NALINILike Tulio Campagnolo and others, the origins of Moa and Nalini clothing go back to the racing days of cycling professional Vincenzo Mantovani, silver medallist at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. Today one of his sons, Claudio, overseas the production.
Nalini is one of the few firms still producing all their clothing in Italy. It's a big business employing a few hundred people. The machine room and other departments are full of old timers, who have spent their working life in this famous factory, just outside Mantova. The warehouse is a treasure trove, holding the history of cycling since the '70s when champions with no branding on their chest raced in the finest wool and silk garments. There was no sponsorship 40 years ago, just a little Nalini label. Slowly things changed. Some of the leading riders - Guimard, Moser, Bugno, Fignon, Ullrich and Indurain only wore Moa or Nalini clothing. They were followed by Di Luca, Friere, Valverde, Contador, Kloden and Cavendish in more recent times. It is a bespoke tailored business when it comes to pro riders - all their garment pieces are cut by hand.

America. 5 million bike tyres, 700,000 tubulars, 1.5 million butyl tubes and 350,000 latex tubes are produced in a factory 24/7. In spite of such mass production there is a degree of hand craftsmanship form the Corsa CX tub down to the Zaffiro clincher. Handmade in Thailand is printed on all Vittoria tyres. Winners of all the most important races in the world – on more than one occasion. Champions like Moser, Hinault, Bugno, Pantani, Bartoli, Meuseeuw, Ullrich, Cipollini, Armstrong, Petacchi, Basso, Cunego, Cancellara and Di Luca have all raced and won on Vittoria products.
