Campagnolo brakes can't actually be used for stopping that's why they use them for Bianchi road bikes

>>1333187does that thing go in the spokes when you use the brake
>>1333195That's not a brake. You twist the upper lever to open the quick release on the rear wheel. Then you twist the lower lever to move the chain to a different cog.Chain tension is addjusted by the rear wheel moving forward or backward in the dropouts.Then you tighten the quick release skewer again.
>>1333187Do you backpedal to change gears
>>1333180This looks like it's missing parts>>1333187>>1333186>>1333181These look hideous though
>>1333198>>1333187Are you sure this thing is the quick realease ? Since there are cogs on the dropouts i thought that maybe there was some apartus allowing you to move the wheel in the dropouts without having to open the quick release. That would be pretty rad.The range on that cassette is ridiculously small though.
>>1336018Yes, it is the quick release, and the *serrations* of the dropout are designed to enable the wheel to get into the correct fore-aft position to engage with the desired sprocket.BTW, gear cassettes didn't become commonplace until the middle-1980s, so that's actually a (multiple) freewheel.
>>1336021That sounds like a pain in the ass
>>1338323only for casuls
>>1333198How do you go fast if you have to get out and do some crazy thing like that?
>>1335380>>1335380it is. the wheel.bork bork bork
>>1342192oddly the system was even still competitive after downtube shifters and derailers came in here is fausto coppi riding (to win) the tdf on cambio corsa vs another rider with a modern bike.
>>1342192It's actually quite quick and provides marginally better chainline efficiency. I would post the video demonstrating the system in action but I'm phone posting
>>1342797I'd wager early derailleurs were awfully inefficient
>>1342797Is it just me or do they have better legs than modern pros?
>>1346100At the time gearing range was very limited meaning everyone had to mash instead of spinning. This gave worse performance but visually better muscles.
