In a few weeks I start my solo tour cycling the length of Japan. My touring bike is a Litespeed with a Campy Record 10 group. While I'm not expecting any major maintenance issues, one never knows. I keep hearing how "no one in Japan works on Campy", and if I have a problem, I'm screwed. Is this true? Do people ride Campy there? Are the shops somewhat familiar with it? Are replacement parts available?
