Dave, I am assuming that the seller is confused about the GPM/Campy relationship so chose to do a bit of Ebay speculation, possibly to snag an uneducated bidder. Campy Never Made anything for GPM. What I recall from years ago, it was the opposite way around; GPM was a contractor for Campy. At the same time, I don't want to denigrate GPM products. They even came out with a one-bolt seatpost years before Campy (SR) did, assuming my hazy memorey is correct. Cheers, Dave Anderson Cut Bank MT
