    Surprised there's no 'Spinal Tap' references yet.

    I should make a $100 11sp decal upgrade kit. I'll make millions.

    Having seen and handled this stuff, I can tell you it is jewelry. My next bike is going to have this on there, I will sell an arm and a leg (not mine though) for it, but I will have it.
    It is bar none the nicest grouppo I have ever seen, and I'm usually a Shimano guy.

    Hmm, I'll have to wait to try 'em, but I can't say I'm very excited about the new lever shape. I really like the current flat top style. As for 11 - meh, whatever.

    The lever/hood shape and under-tape routing were two of the three things that make campy a clear choice for me up 'til now. The gap is definitely getting more narrow, but the third factor is the fact that campy levers don't flop around like shimano, and that is still a difference. I really prefer separate shift and brake levers.

    And I would be surprised if current levers can't be retrofitted with an 11 click pawl. As I recall they offered 9 to 10 spd conversion kits. If campy doesn't make one, someone else should. And since it's the same freehub, the derailleurs should work, right?

    I am not a huge fan of the current hoods, they don't fit in my hands quick as much as I'd like. But maybe it's partially because I've been riding Shimano forever.
    But the new hoods feel really, really, totally excellently awesome. The separate levers will take some adjustment, but it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make.

    I still can't get over how smooth the BB bearings were, it wasn't even funny.

    Guess I better start saving my pennies...and I bet it's going to be a lot of pennies. Any word on MSRP?

    Oh Lord, they have reduced themselves to using acronyms. "CULT". Lame!

    Still looks rad though.

    Start saving now, pennies be damned, save the silver coins!
    Not sure when they're going to announce MSRP. It'll be spendy though, especially with the Euro conversion.

    I remember saying that 10 speeds was enough... :)

    As far as the dual levers go - its take 10 seconds to adapt from Shimano levers.

    The flat hoods are my most favorite design feature for Campy 10 but I am intrigued by the new design.

    Anyone specs on how narrow the chain is?

    England... For now!
    Nigel Tufnel (Campagnolo): The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and...
    Marty DiBergi (Everyone Else): Oh, I see. And most cassets go up to ten?
    Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.
    Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's faster? Is it any faster?
    Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one faster, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be riding at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your rear derailleur. Where can you go from there? Where?
    Marty DiBergi: I don't know.
    Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
    Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.
    Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One faster.
    Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten faster and make ten be the top number and make that a little faster?
    Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to eleven.
