Subject: [CR]Non anodized Campy reason

RE: Someone on the list previously commented about the reason for the Campagnolo Record front derailleur not being anodized, something like "I see no reason for this except perhaps economy."

The front derailleur has steel pivot pins which appear to be forged in place. I suspect that the manufacturing process may not allow for their being installed after anodizing.

Steel may not be introduced to an aluminum anodizing bath. If it happened the parts would be destroyed.

There's your reason...
