A revered brand among cycling enthusiasts and bike racers alike, Campagnolo is to cycling what Ferrari is to race cars. And like Ferrari, it carries the name of its founder, Tullio Campagnolo, who segued from bicycle racing to manufacturing when he found the equipment of the day not up to the rigors of competition. His patented designs are still in use today, and Campagnolo's components have been part of more cycling victories than any other brand. Yet the same equipment used by world champions is available to everyday cyclists -- it's this universal appeal that has forged Campagnolo's sterling reputation. The company's legacy is explored here in text and images. With its deeply researched history, much of it drawn from the company's private archives, spectacular color photography, and lavish presentation, ""Campagnolo: 75 Years"" is a book for every cycling lover.
