Built to Play, the Lego Campagnolo Derailleur

Lego Campagnolo Derailleur

Legos are the precision made plastic blocks that help bring a child’s imaginations to life. The simple pieces can be used to create impenetrable forts, spaceships capable of intergalactic travel, or this – a Campagnolo derailleur.

This lego creation is no child’s play. It was the creation of Flickr user uma uma, who’s also built some world champ keychains. Check them out after the break….

Unfortunately, uma uma does not have directions listed for his lego creations. So it might be hard to recreate his derailleur masterpiece, luckily these key chains don’t seem too hard to build.

  1. Lousy reporting again, BR.

    Weight? 10 or 11 speed? Di2 compatibility? How does it hold up for CX applications (mud, etc.)?

  2. I have to second the comment “there is no S in Lego.” the word Lego is inherently plural. anyone who says differently is illiterate and foolish.

  3. Lego or Legos? While we may know what’s proper, a sampling of kids between the ages of 6 and 10 all said Legos with an S. That’s with an n=4 and r=0. Of course, if they add the S to it, then they are open to litigation from Specialyers so please don’t make this widely known.

  4. Could have used some Technic pieces in there. In fact, makes me wonder what scale you’d have to start building at to make a working Lego bike drivetrain with a chain. :: Heads off to the googles to see if someone’s already done it ::

  5. Tom, I have been a “Lego fan” for about 25 years now and I have always said “Legos” because that’s how it was growing up. IIRC even the Lego commercials said it with an S at the end. So it’s canon with the S. You can insist that “Lego” is plural but you will just sound like an elitist hipster if you try to argue with people about it.

  6. I’ve never heard anyone pluralise ‘Lego’ in person. Was it ‘The Simpsons’ which introduced this regrettable malapropism?
