Knowing absolutely nothing about the topic, I will throw in what I "heard" regarding Gipiemme--- That the name stands for the initials G.P.M. -- and they stood for either one person or three people who worked for Campagnolo and left and started doing his/their own thing.&nbsp; Is this how rumnors get started?&nbsp; Cheers-- Nelson Miller-- Seattle ------------------------------------------

&gt;I seem to recall having had several full sets of "Gippiemme" brakes in both

&gt;silver and black. The box said "Made in Italy" tho' the back of the

&gt;calipers were clearly stamped "Simplex__ Made in France"

&gt; &gt; Dave,

&gt; &gt; I am assuming that the seller is confused about the GPM/Campy

&gt; &gt; relationship so chose to do a bit of Ebay speculation, possibly to snag an

&gt; &gt; uneducated bidder.

&gt; &gt; Campy Never Made anything for GPM. What I recall from years ago, it

&gt; &gt; was the opposite way around; GPM was a contractor for Campy.

&gt; &gt; At the same time, I don't want to denigrate GPM products. They even

&gt; &gt; came out with a one-bolt seatpost years before Campy (SR) did, assuming my

&gt; &gt; hazy memorey is correct. Cheers,

&gt; &gt; &gt; wrong.I understand that Gipiemme was made by Campagnolo in the 1980's

&gt; &gt; &gt; through to the 1990's,The condition is excellent in both chrome and


&gt; &gt; &gt; finish, bearings are very smooth."

&gt; &gt; &gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; This bit about Campy making Gipiemme is news to me, is this seller just

&gt; &gt; &gt; embellishing or is there any truth to this, and if so any more info


&gt; &gt; &gt; this 'relationship'?
