Cycle Mode Tokyo part 1. Weight Weenie parts/carbon frames

The big new items at this year's Cycle Mode were AX Lightness bars and Shimano and Miche carbon cranks

For more track bikes, see the previous blog entry...

...oh, but one final mention. Dunces of the year award.

And the winner is Campagnolo Japan, based in Yokohama. Given product names to copy, they couldn't even transcribe the letters and check them before printing their promotional material. Not only did they get the signs wrong, the official Japanese Campagnolo catalogue includes the "Veroce" (sic) groupset and the "Pistai" (sic) groupset. I truly hope they lose their contract with Campagnolo for making such stupid and basic errors.
