Just as the sign says, that's pure.

The FAEMA Urania:


This Urania is very fire and ice. Like the Colnago:

FAEMA MX-Leader:


You can tell where this one is headed. It's going to be a disaster.

I won't lie. I like these:








There are some other ones as well:


I always hated the Systeme U uniform, but the little cup looks kinda neat.

There are mugs as well:




They're sold here:

I like the espresso cups... I can't believe they don't have the Faema espresso cup.

My second choice would be the Campione del Mondo espresso cup.

I'm not digging that rainbow cup. The stripes aren't to scale and the cup doesn't look like a miniature jersey. This set has a nicer rainbow stripe:

Of course on this set the king of the mountains is all weird.

These "team" cups and a FAEMA E61 in the kitchen or garage could be fun.

I've always been split on the Campy corkscrew. I love the fiendishly clever design, but the problem with it is that it's too easy to use. That is, a Campy corkscrew is so easy to use that anyone can use it and achieve a perfect result.

The skirt actually slips down and onto the shoulder of the bottle:


The mouth of the bottle is captured and centered in the corkscrew and the skirt centers the corkscrew onto the bottle's shoulder. Everything is concentric and aligning the worm is child's play. If you tear a cork with the Campy corkscrew, that cork would have torn no matter what. It all works really well. Too well. You don't feel like a Jedi using it.

The Campy corkscrew is also really big:


I think the coolest corkscrews are the Laguiole style:

http://www.wineware.co.uk/corkscrews/forge-de-laguiole/

These are a nice blend of function and skill requirement. They work very well for the skiller operator, but they're not so easy that any ham-fisted moron can achieve a perfect result.

I think the Campy corkscrew is just one of those things that's neat if you like bicycles and other Campy stuff.

I've had mine for a year or so.



I really like it. Until I owned the Campy, I always used a Laguiole opener. Now I always grab the Campy. Even if something is cool, you'll only use it if it gets the job done. Every other twist style corkscrew I've used or owned sucked. They worked, but felt crappy. The Campy works really well.
