I believe 1983 was the end of Campagnolo as the "gold standard" in bicycle componentry. Shimano had produced 10 pitch, AX and Deore in quick succession and Campy blundered into Victory and Triomphe and eventually the gorgeous dead end, the C-record group. With NR and SR dated and Shimanos dominance in click shift and mountain biking, the ranks of top end biking had real choices. Alan Bernstein, spring at last in glorious NYC
